SeaWorld San Diego’s zoological team, including Dr. Justine O’Brien from the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Reproductive Research Center, recently conducted artificial insemination with a female polar bear named Snowflake. The 19-year-old bear will be monitored for a potential pregnancy starting in early fall when animal care specialists will test her progesterone levels in the hopes of a pregnancy.

Marine Animal Adaptations

I learned that adaptations are the changes some animals make to be able to survive in their environment. Different marine animals have adaptations that help them live in and out of water.

Whales and other animals swimming in cold water need to stay warm. They have warm blood so they have layers of blubber so their bodies don’t get too cold.

Exploring the Wild Arctic

I had so much fun on the Wild Arctic Up-Close Tour the last time I was at SeaWorld San Diego. You can see the animals through windows on the other side of the exhibit but on the tour you get to go see the animals from inside. It’s awesome because you get to see how the SeaWorld trainers take care of the animals. You get to learn about beluga whales, polar bears and walruses. Our tour guide let me stand at the front with her and knew a lot about animals.
