Henry (born 1997)

Henry is the offspring of a female harbour seal kept at Zoo Rheine that was already taking part in experiments. He was trained since he was young, which is probably the reason why he reacts very sensitive to commands. In the daily routine Henry fascinates by his artistic jumps. During many years Henry has taken part in hydrodynamic experiments and has helped us to understand which information a seal can extract from a hydrodynamic trail. Besides hydrodynamics Henry was performing in visual and chemosensory experiments.
