Sea Lion Cove filled up with 200-thousand gallons of water over the course of several hours.

The new exhibit is scheduled to open in September, but will be ready for the seals and sea lions even sooner. It will cost just over $10 million dollars.

It's about eight times bigger than the zoo's current sea lion exhibit, which is home to three sea lions and a seal.
