Juris was born in 2005 at the Lithuanian Sea Museum in Klaipeda. Since February 2006, he has lived at the Seal Centre Friedrichskoog. When he wants fish, he often slaps the water surface with both front flippers to make himself noticed through the noise. He can often be heard from afar imitating a foghorn or grunting to impress the other seals.
