Rescued sea lion Cruz is blind, but that doesn’t keep him from training like the other animals! Our experts have built a program based on sound, touch and, most importantly, trust. Cruz uses rattles, whistles and voice and tactile cues to take part in training—and participate in his own care. Learn more about Cruz and Shedd's other sea lions on our blog >
Shedd's otters celebrated a snow day as animal care experts brought fresh snow into the Regenstein Sea Otter Habitat. In typical “otter-ly” adorable fashion, the Californian and Alaskan sea otters were spotted running, jumping, sliding and rolling in the snow. You can learn more about our otters in our "Meet the Sea Otters" blog! >
Porcupines get treats too! Tyson, Shedd’s prehensile-tailed porcupine, is a gentle and curious animal from the Amazon rainforest. Though Tyson isn’t on view, he’s one of the many animals Shedd cares for behind the scenes. You can engage with him during some of our animal experiences in Amazon Rising to help deepen your connection to our animals and to look nature in the eye.
