Australian Sea Lion Pup A male Australian sea lion pup has been born to Charlie and Nala, and has been named ‘Torre’. The newest addition to our marine mammal family Torre is the fourth generation of his family to live at Taronga Zoo. His mother, Nala, was born at Taronga Zoo in 2009; her mother, Kira, was born at Taronga Zoo in 2002; and her mother, Kasha, arrived at Taronga Zoo in the 1990s. The keeper in this article says Kasha was rescued by Taronga Zoo; but I was previously told she was from the Adelaide Zoo (and a sister of Portia at Underwater World/Sea Life Sunshine Coast). Torre is the third birth in recent years. Lexie, who is a rescue animal born 2002, gave birth to Max in 2015; and Moby in 2017.
