Mystic Aquarium’s Seal Pup Has A New Name

MYSTIC, Conn. (CBS) – The seal formally known as ‘Pup 49″ has a new name.

The Mystic Aquarium says more than 8,000 votes were cast in a public naming contest for Pup 49, a female harbor seal that had her rear, left flipper amputated after suffering a life-threatening infection.

Aquarium volunteers narrowed it down to five names for public voting—Coral, Grace, Hope, Madison and Mystic—and Coral came out on top.

Now 9 months old, the public can see Coral until Sunday, April 28, when she will then be moved off display for training.

Guests can expect to see Coral
