St Andrews Aquarium has welcomed a new seal pup.

Ten-month-old Luna travelled 1,286 miles across Europe by car to his new home from Kattegatcentret Aquarium in Grena, Denmark.

Luna is now settling in to his comfortable new surroundings where he is getting to know his new aquarium buddies, Nelly and Togo.

Luna’s arrival is the latest in a wave of new additions to the aquarium’s growing family. The aquarium recently welcomed a massive, 15-feet-long, albino Burmese python, the largest known snake in Scotland, along with a regular Burmese python also measuring almost 15 feet.

John Mace, Manager at St Andrews Aquarium, commented: “Everyone here is delighted to be welcoming Luna to St Andrews Aquarium’s growing family. I am sure Luna will love his new home and he is bound to be a hit a hit with our many visitors.”
