VIDEO: New sea lion pups at Bronx Zoo

- The Bronx Zoo is home to two new baby sea lions!

The California sea lion pups were born in June and haven't been named yet. One is a male, but zoo keepers haven't yet been able to determine the gender of the other one.

Video shows the two pups discovering the water and each other, swimming around, and plopping down for a nap.

These not-so-little pups are the first pups of their father, Clyde, since he has been at the Bronx Zoo. Clyde was one of two adult males that arrived at the Queens Zoo in 2013 as part of a wildlife management project with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

He now calls the Bronx Zoo home.

California sea lions are not endangered. They are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972.
