Barking Mad

Photographer: W.C. Barnes

This Californian Sea Lion was barking loudly. A Californian weighs in around 1/2 ton. Their bigger cousins, the Stellar Sea Lions, weigh in over a full ton.

Sea Lions like all animals follow the food. We follow the dollar, they follow the food. When the bait fish come into the inlet during the winter time the Sea Lions aren’t far behind. All the male Lions move into the inlet for the winter time, while the females/pups are smarter & swim to warmer waters further south! Lions love the heat of the sun and so can be found sunbathing on the rocks all day long!  One generally can hear and smell them before they see them.
