Coolio, a rescued baby elephant seal swims around in a tank behind the scenes at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium on Friday, April 25, 2014, in Pittsburgh.

The zoo partnered with the Northcoast Marine Mammal Center (NMMC) to provide a home to the blind yearling northern elephant seal.

The young oceangoing mammal was blinded and almost died from injuries sustained before he was was found lying on Pebble Beach in Crescent City, California when he was three months old.

The zoo says it is the only northern elephant seal in a zoo in North America.
