Gidget, a 27 year old California sea lion and beloved star of the Denver Zoo passed away on October 31, 2012

Gidget was a very charismatic animal that charmed millions of guests over the years at the sea lion show. She loved working with her keepers and awing guests with her swimming agility. She was adored by everyone that had the pleasure of meeting her.

Gidget was a lifelong resident of the Denver Zoo. She was born to the parents, Skippy and Juanita, on June 17, 1985. In addition to being a star of the sea lion show, many guests will remember Gidget for giving Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper a kiss to celebrate the city and the Zoo acheaving the highest certification for sustainable management, ISO 14001 in 2009. Gidget was also well known for KUSA-TV sportscaster Drew Soicher's segment " Gidgets Pick " where she predicted of each Denver Broncos game by choosing between two team - logoed footballs every week. She guessed an amazing 60% of the picks. Although she was not always accurate, guests still clamored to find out which team she was betting on untill her " retirement " in the 2010 season.

Gidget will be missed by many.
