New Mexico State Fair welcomes interactive sea lion show

A trio of sea lions is making a splash at Expo New Mexico. 

Trainer Jimmy Earhart and his three slippery friends are showing off their talents with an interactive State Fair show. 

The all-girl troop has more than 100  learned behaviors incorporated into their routine. 

“She does, yes’s, no’s, she does recycling, she can play dead, she does tricks in the water, she does a beautiful back flip in the water,” Earhart said. 

Earhart said the sea lions were rescued and would not survive in the wild. 

Their half-hour show begins each day at 2:15 p.m. in the kiddie lot at the fair.
