Potty Duck 
Little ones are like sponges - they see someone do something, then try to imitate it. That's the premise behind the Potty Duck, the inventive new potty training tool for bath time. The Potty Duck Potty Training Toy is a squirting rubber duck with a flushing toy toilet that's more than just a bath toy. Kids squeeze the duck to make it pee, then flush the toilet. This unique potty training tool takes advantage of the fact kids learn by imitation and through play. It can be used before kids are ready to start potty training to get them thinking about it. The Potty Duck comes with training tips for success!

Baby Penguins and Baby Sea Lion Pups at OdySea Aquarium

Baby Penguins Born at OdySea Aquarium

  • OdySea Aquarium announces the very first baby African Penguin chick.   The chick fully hatched on April 25th (World Penguin Day!) and had its first check-up later that day with the Animal Health team
  • The hatching and survival of this chick is not only a big deal to OdySea Aquarium as its first-ever African penguin chick, but also because this species of penguin is listed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as endangered.  As part of AZA, OdySea Aquarium will participate in the Species Survival Program (SSP) and ensure that they are doing their part to promote a healthy population of African Penguins.  
  • African Penguins are one of 17 species of penguin and found exclusively on the southern coast of Africa. Their lifespan is typically between 10 to 15 years. However, they often live longer in human care, as they have no predators and are provided a consistent diet of the highest quality fish and regular proactive veterinary care.  African penguin chicks weigh anywhere from 60-80 grams when first hatched and can fit into the palm of an adult human hand. They have very soft down feathers all over their body and are very fluffy looking. They are not able to go into the water until they molt these down baby feathers and get their juvenile plumage. 
  • Moms and Dads are vital to raising the chicks by keeping it warm and fed. African penguin chicks cannot thermoregulate until they are about 2 weeks old. Mom and Dad not only sit on the egg and chick, but they will take turns feeding while the other protects the chick.  They hunt to eat enough food for themselves but also to regurgitate to their chick. The parents will continue to protect the chick for at least the first 30 days at which point both parents will go to forage simultaneously. Chicks that are left alone during this time will form groups with other chicks, called crèches, to keep warm and reduce predation.
  • Tux and Prince are raising the chick on exhibit right now at Penguin Point. The Animal Health and Animal Care teams are monitoring the health of Mom, Dad, and chick closely, but otherwise, allowing the parents to do their job.  OdySea Aquarium has created a "penguin playpen" around the nest, so that the parents can come and go as they please, but the chick is restricted to the area around the nest so that it stays dry and safe from the other birds in the colony. 

Baby Sea Lion Pups Soon-to- BeBorn

  • OdySea Aquarium is excited to announce the impending birth new California sea lion babies (called "pups") expected to arrive June or July.  
  • As the expectant moms Ella, Penny and Skye carry out their gestation period, which lasts between 11 and 12 months for California sea lions, the Animal Care team at OdySea Aquarium is busy preparing for the upcoming delivery. Preparation includes regular exams by the aquarium's veterinarian and Animal Health Director, Dr. Eric Anderson who, along with the team, assesses the expectant mothers' weight, behavior, body form, and overall appetite. They also perform routine voluntary diagnostics on the sea lions, such as ultrasounds, to monitor the pups' growth and development.  
  • Ella, Penny and Skye were sired by dad-to-be, Hondo. California sea lions are polygamous, so typically one dominant bull male will mate with more than one female. The bull claims his harem and breeding territory and will fight other bull males that try to challenge that. Hondo is the eldest and most dominant male at OdySea Aquarium so the hierarchy within the sea lion family is well established, and the two younger males do not challenge him for this role. 
  • While the father's sole role is breeding, mothers are vital to rearing the pups, which weigh between 13 and 20 pounds at birth. Mothers nurse their young for up to a year and teach them important skills such as swimming and foraging for food. Pups learn to recognize the smell and vocalizations of their mothers, and mothers recognize their pups the same way.
