Galapagos Sea Lion and her Pup Breast Feeding      North Seymour Island   

The Galapagos Sea Lion is a sub-specie of the Californian Sea Lion. They are nocturnal animals spending most of the daytime sleeping and resting on the shore or in shady crevices and caves. These mammals range from 5 to 8 ft. in length and weigh between 110 to 800 lbs. The larger ones are the adult bull males with harems of between 5 and 25 cows. Feeding mostly on sardines, Galapagos Sea Lions sometimes travel 6 to 10 miles from the coast over the span of days to hunt for their prey. Their numbers on the islands fluctuate between 20,000 & 50,000.
