MYSTIC, Conn. (WTNH) –  If you’re looking for some family fun on the holidays, the cute factor is off the charts at Mystic Aquarium in a new exhibit.  Ziggy Star, a Northern fur seal, is making her public debut.

She’s part of a “circle of friends” in the Pacific Northwest Exhibit. There is also another Northern fur seal and seven harbor seal pups.

Ziggy Star came to Mystic in March, after being found along the California coast barely alive with a serious neurologic condition. She’s thriving at Mystic Aquarium now living in a social setting with her other adorable buddies… happy for the holidays!
