Noito - Patagonian Sea Lion

Noito is a young male Patagonian sea lion born on 1st July 2005 in a marine park in Valencia, Spain, becoming a resident at the sanctuary in March 2009.

Noito has a distinctive orange-brown coat and very large eyes, especially when he knows his fish is on the way! He is a very gentle character both with his pool partners and the Animal Care Team and loves his daily training sessions with the team. He can often be found blowing bubbles and playing with the sanctuary visitors through the underwater viewing windows.

Noito´s favourite fish is herring, especially when hidden in a feed ball!
