After the first couple weeks of the shooting, Silent Knight was losing weight rapidly, but is now up to 345 pounds, which is normal for a sea lion his size and age.
The center is currently in negotiations with a couple zoos and aquariums to find him a permanent living spot.
One of the zoos they're talking to is the San Francisco Zoo, which is working on rebuilding its vacant sea lion pool within the next couple months.
"He'll do fine at a zoo or aquarium," Oswald said, adding that Silent Knight will have to be specially trained on how to navigate his new digs.
"We want to make sure he has the best possible environment," Oswald said.
