This year on June 19th , Dolphin Discovery Riviera Maya celebrated a male
Sea Lion’s birth. This is the third breeding of a beautiful female sea lion named
Luna that lives in this location.
Both have great health and they are under our extraordinary veterinarian team care.
They make sure that both stays in a extremely clean area, and that Luna feeds
her breeding between 14 and 16 times a day.
Some interesting facts about sea lions gestation are:
1.- The gestation period of a Sea Lion is from about 11 months.
2.- The female Sea Lion decides when to start the gestation taking into account
the better climate and environment for her breeding’s birth. This is why
Sea Lion offspring are normally born at summer.
3.- A Sea Lion’s birth takes about two hours.
4.- It can only be born one Sea Lion per gestation.
The little Sea Lion will enjoy the love and care that we provide him on
Riviera Maya’s location and soon guests will be able to interact with it.
