CALIFORNIA SEA LION (Zalophus californianus)
Monterey Bay, California, USA  by Kevin Schafer, Seattle, Washington, USA / Smithsonian Institute “Monterey Bay is home to a large number of sea    lions, many of which spend the day resting on    rocky breakwaters at the entrance to the harbor.    Intensely social, they often huddle together or    use one another as mattresses or pillows. Here I    was struck by the  almost affectionate pose of    these two pups trying to grab a nap amid the     chaos of the haul-out.”

This past weekend we sailed over to Catalina and stayed in Cherry Cove which is a quiet harbor. On Saturday, there were more than a dozen sea lion cows swimming among the boats. We came face-to-face with the group as we came around the corner in our dinghy, and I’m not sure which if us was most surprised. One of our dogs had never seen a sea lion before and cocked her head in confusion, . After we checked each other out, we continued on our way.
