ANCHORAGE- A Steller sea lion pup has been born at the Alaska SeaLife Center, and officials there are saying is the first such birth in captivity in North America in decades.

The female pup was born on June 20. Officials at the aquarium in Seward, Alaska, say the pup and her mother, 13-year-old Eden, are doing well.

Eden is on breeding loan from the Vancouver Aquarium in British Columbia. The father is the Alaska SeaLife Center's resident male, Woody, who turns 20 year this.

The pup doesn't have a name yet.
