Moe (born 2006)

Moe is of the same age as Filou but arrived from Zoo Karlsruhe when he was 1.5 years old. He has spent his first year of life mainly with conspecifics and with only little contact to human caretakers. This shows in his behaviour; he is a very social animal and often treats humans as other seals. His very broad range in vocalization is impressive as well as his ability to intercept fish which is thrown to other seals. Moe has taken part in a lot of hydrodynamic experiments. Currently, he partakes in a spatial orientation experiment.
