I've got my eye on you camera boy!

The Galápagos sea lion (Zalophus wollebaeki) is a species of sea lion that exclusively breeds on the Galápagos Islands.

 

When wet, sea lions are a shade of dark brown, but once dry, their color varies greatly. The females tend to be a lighter shade than the males.

 

Adult males also tend to have a thicker, more robust neck, chest, and shoulders in comparison to their slender abdomen.

 

Females are somewhat opposite males, with a longer, more slender neck and thick torso.

 

In Gardner Bay, Espanola Island, in the Galapagos.
