National Zoo exhibit highlights North American species

California sea lions, gray seals and brown pelicans are just a few of an impressive list of animals on display in the nation's capital.  The National Zoo in Washington on Saturday held its grand opening of the remodeled "American Trail" exhibit, which features only species from the United States and Canada.

"We tend to highlight a lot of pandas and African species and those kinds of exotics," said Rebecca Miller, an animal keeper at the National Zoo. "But we have some really great animals here (in this exhibit) that people can see ...  American-born," she said.

The landscaping is designed to mimic the animals' natural environment.
