HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) — Hersheypark announced on Tuesday, Dec. 13, that Cruz, a juvenile California sea lion, has joined the five other animals that live at the Aquatheatre.

Ocean Connections partnered with Hersheypark to bring Cruz to Hershey.

Cruz was born in the New York Aquarium in Brooklyn on Memorial Day 2021. Now, Cruz weighs 115 pounds and eats 10 pounds of fish every day.

The Hersheypark animal care team says Cruz is energetic, playful, and curious.

Another California sea lion: Ripley, three Atlantic harbor seals: Cocoa, Cobh, and Harper, and a rescued grey seal: Bowie, are the other five Aquatheatre animals.
