While this may seem like good news for dolphins, there is a catch-22 about being replaced.

For years, the United States Navy has trained dolphins and sea lions to locate enemy mines underwater as well as enemy divers.

Dolphins were trained to alert sailors of mines while sea lions placed claws on swimmers, forcing them to stop.

Now the Navy has made robots to help detect mines

Neil Patrick Harris may be gearing up to host the 2012 Tony Awards tonight, but he certainly didn't let his responsibility for that get in the way of spending some quality time with his fiance and children at the Central Park Zoo yesterday afternoon in New York City!

The adorable pair were spotted with their twins, Gideon Scott and Harper Grace, getting to know some animal friends, like the friendly sea lions in the park's exhibit!

Ch-ch-check some pictures from their day out (above)!

SO CUTE!

Looks like they had such a lovely time!

Break a leg tonight during the Tony's tonight, Neil!
