Of course, both teams have been busy preparing. The challenges that make up today's competition will take place both in and out of the water, but we already know that Northern fur seals are well adapted to moving around in different environments. Check out this video to see what the seals have been up to.
Be sure to check in next week for some of the highlights of today's event along with the final score. In the meantime, who do you think will be the winner?

We train the Aquarium's Atlantic harbor seals and Northern fur seals for enrichment and to build a trusting relationship that allows for regular medical checkups. Read our posts to learn about what's new with the animals and how we train behaviors.
