Sea Lion High Show Coming to SeaWorld Orlando in 2015

SeaLionHigh_Logo_460x345The comedic sea lion duo, Clyde and Seamore, star in SeaWorld Orlando’s newest show, “Clyde & Seamore’s Sea Lion High,” opening spring 2015.

It’s a hilarious tale, filled with amazing animal behaviors and splashy audience fun. Clyde and Seamore find themselves in slippery pursuit of their high school diplomas and judging from the slapstick, high-energy pranks and hijinks, there’s no doubt Clyde and Seamore will emerge as heads of their class.

When joined by mischievous otters, a 2,300-pound walrus and a cast of goofy human characters swimming along in the fun, it certainly won’t be a normal class.

SeaWorld Orlando – Home to Really Cute Chicks

Flamingo_Chick_Hatches_at_SeaWorld_OrlandoThe SeaWorld Orlando Aviculture Team recently welcomed two new additions to their family – a Caribbean flamingo and a tawny frogmouth chick.

The flamingo chick hatched on August 16, weighing just a pound.  Although today it stands about 18 inches tall and weighs three pounds, when fully grown it will be five feet tall and double its weight. Its characteristic pink feathers start developing at three months, but the chick won’t gain its full color until it’s about three years old.  Flamingos’ bright pink feathers come from the carotenoid pigments they consume as part of the crustaceans found in their diet.

Guests can see the chick with its parents in the flamingo habitat located near Manta. Did you know that both flamingo parents share feeding responsibilities?  The chick is fed crop milk that comes from the parents’ upper digestive tract.  As the parents feed the chick, they actually lose their pink color – and their feathers turn a pale pink or even white.  Their color is regained as the chicks become more independent.  Caribbean flamingos, native to South America and the Caribbean, are by far the brightest and one of the largest of all the flamingos.
