Sam (born 1994)

Sam is the third oldest seal of the group kept at the Marine Science Center. In the seawater enclosure he turned to be a successful hunter. He originally came from Zoo Rheine. Stoic in character he is a real "workhorse" but can also be a piece of work; he performs accurately and patiently in all experiments. Recently he has participated in experiments on the earth magnetic field and on polarization vision.
