NZ Sea lion - Arnie

The Flying Whale

NZ Sea lion - Arnie

“Arnie always seems to have been a gentle giant. He was born up in the dunes at Sandfly Bay and I saw him near his birth site as a 5 or 6 year-old, clearly still calling for his mum.    

His Mother was Teyah, who is the matriarch of the southern coast dynasty of breeding females... Mia, Madeline, Pippa, Moana.  The only surviving boy, it is perhaps not surprising you are most likely to find him with the girls on the north coast…”
