orkney is a grey seal. he's goobers other neighbor. orkney came to the sfzoo in 1970, when he was one year old. at almost 40, he is definitely one of the senior residents, but aside from failing eyesight is in great health! his home is being remodeled right now, but he can still sometimes be seen swimming in his pool or laying the sun. lately he has been more active than i've ever seen him, i think he likes the sounds of the renovation! ... added 4.24.10 > the above info is true in as much as i found it in research, BUT it is noted in official zoo info that his birthday is 6.1.62 which means orkney will celebrate his 48th bday in 2010!
