Sea Lions

The sea lions we can observe during our excursion are of the species known as “one-hair” sea lions. They are pinnipeds, aquatic mammals, carnivores with their four limbs modified to be fins and legs that allow them to swim, walk, and climb rocks. Unlike seals, sea lions are larger and better adapted for life on land. They live on coasts, in caves, and in rocky crevices caused by water erosion. Their lifespan ranges from 18 to 24 years. Males can weigh up to 350 kg and females 150 kg.
