South American Sea Lions

At Peninsula Valdes. I love the look on the faces as they turn them toward the sun. Reminds me a bit of cats.

And in the Beagle Channel. Loved watching them play in the water.

The featured image is Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse which is on an islet in the Beagle Channel.

On our cruise around Cape Horn in 2017 we saw some enormous sea lions. The galleries above show a couple of spots where they were very present. I was fascinated to see the difference in size between the males and females. Also by the fact that the babies are black so they absorb more warmth from the sun.

For today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt: Sea Lions.
