Two California Sea Lions nuzzling photo

Pictured are two California Sea Lions, Zalophus californianus in the water nuzzling.

 

They are found along the coast from southern Alaska to Mexico. Male California Sea Lions can grow up to 300kg while the females are smaller at 100 kg. They have a dog-like face due to their long muzzles and external ears. These mammals have adapted well to man-made environments and their populations are increasing steadily.
