A female ringed seal called Yuki at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan in Osaka is drawing visitors’ attention with her unusually round figure.
Nevertheless, she looks especially plump because her head is rather small and she tends to tuck it in while sleeping, the aquarium said. The number of visitors to the aquarium has increased since some visitors posted photos of the seal on their Twitter accounts in late September.
According to the report, the name of the female seal is Yuki. It is about 10 years old and about a meter long.

A year after she came to the Central Coast Aquarium in Avila Beach, “Joan” the Octopus is back home in the Pacific Ocean. Joan, a Giant Pacific Octopus, was donated to the aquarium last year after she was accidentally caught by a fisherman.
“They’re the largest species of octopus,” Central Coast Aquarium Programs Dir. Travis Norton said. “They can get up to 16 feet long and weigh 100 lbs, so she’s very small for a Giant Pacific Octopus. We think she’s about 1 year old.”
According to Central Coast aquarium, Joan had to be taken back to the Pacific Ocean because that is where she belongs.
