A pair of adorable newly-rescued seal pups are making waves at the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Mammal Rescue Centre.

Meet “Meghan Mackerel” and “Prince Herring.” The duo with the royal names were rescued separately in June.


Check out the cuties here in this video shared Monday by the Vancouver Aquarium:

“Meghan Mackerel was found alone on Sidney Island on June 18, near Victoria, with no sign of her mother. She was underweight, had remnants of her umbilical cord still attached, and is still covered in the soft fur of a premature pup (called lanugo),” explains the Aquarium.

Meanwhile, Mackerel’s new pal “Prince Herring,” is also a preemie pup. Prince Herring was “found June 20 in a marsh located inland from Crescent Beach, still attached to his mother’s placenta, also apart from his mother. Herring in particular was in critical condition through the weekend, but his condition is improving,” adds the Aquarium.
