The Animals of Sea World

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of working in the zoology department at Sea World, so I thought I'd share a few of my pictures from that time.

This is Coby, the King penguin. All of the King penguins were named after famous "kings," ie Elvis. Coby was named for the King Cobra.

This is Raul, the Magellanic penguin. These guys were the ones who did touring for Sea World publicity since there were able to withstand warmer temperatures. When they went on tour, they got to stay in hotel rooms like everybody else. Of course, they were confined to the bathroom.

I got to spend time with these guys and their adorable little ones.

I also spent a lot of time at the manatee exhibit. Since Florida had a moratorium on breeding manatees, the females went to Sea World, while the males went to Epcot.

And of course I got to do this.

If you'd like to read more about Sea World, check out their website. They have a ton of information about their animals including animal facts and their conservation efforts. There is even a live penguin cam! Check it out!
