Our Celebrity Photo Album
Over the years we have had a lot of famous people come visit our animals. Even though most celebrities are used to special treatment everywhere they go, most really get excited when they have to opportunity to meet our stars.
(To see a larger version, just click on the small thumbnail photos below)
Can't forget "Scotty", actor James Doohan. While he seems a little more shy than the captain (note the hands in the pockets), he still seems to enjoy exchanging smiles with a friendly sea lion. (Note: some faces are blurred to protect the privacy of celebrity families and friends.)
Eddie Murphy and his family stop by back stage after a sea lion show to say "hi" to all the critters and trainers. (Note: some faces are blurred to protect the privacy of celebrity families and friends.)
Sports stars also are known to stop by for a critter "meet and greet" from time to time. One the biggest names in baseball, Mark McGwire gets a kiss from a sea lion. Congratulations, no doubt, for his record breaking career.
And now for a classic:
This is probably our favorite celebrity trainer photo of all time. Here is the "king" himself, Elvis Presley feeding a fish to a false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens) at Marineland of the Pacific. Marineland was located in Los Angeles, CA from 1955 to 1987. Being so close to Hollywood it was visited by a bunch of famous people and served as a location for quite a few movies and TV shows. This photo was probably taken in the early 1960s. Man, check out the cool shoes!
