Scooter 1

Scooter is a 22-year-old male Pacific harbor seal that lives at Oceans of Fun at the Milwaukee County Zoo in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He came to Oceans of Fun in October 2009, on a breeding loan in collaboration with Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, CT and the Brookfield Zoo in Brookfield, IL. Scooter is a wonderful addition to the Oceans of Fun family and has won over the heart of many guests. Gentle and trusting, Scooter is a natural in our interactive programs and camps. He is a very special animal - due to large cataracts Scooter's eyesight is extremely limited.  The animal care team has committed themselves to providing him with excellent care and have altered his training style to ensure success.  Scooter is highly receptive and has spent the past eight years at Oceans of Fun stimulated with new husbandry training goals which ensure voluntary cooperation between the veterinary staff and Scooter. He continues to learn each and every day.
