The New England Aquarium this week welcomed a new addition to its family of rare northern fur seals, and it's a cutie. On Tuesday night, Ursula, a 15-year-old seal, gave birth to her second pup in two years.

The aquarium staff expects the pup will be introduced to the public sometime in early fall.

This program aired on August 9, 2013. The audio for this program is not available.
