Halftime the Sea Lion Makes Fans at Bronx Zoo

She made her entrance during the Super Bowl when she bellied up to a seaside bar in California. But animal rescuers hoped Halftime would flourish in the wild, instead of among football fans. Unfortunately, the orphaned sea lion pup popped up in civilization again several weeks later.
Perceiving her slim chance for survival in the ocean, animal experts decided to offer the orphaned pup a place at the Bronx Zoo, where she happily joined four older animals.
