Probably the most engaging of all
Galapagos animals is the Galapagos sea lion, an endemic subspecies
of the California sea lion. Sea lions are found on many beaches
throughout the Galapagos and can be found in all stages of life,
from just-born pups to old bulls no longer able to maintain
their position as beach master and relegated to the bachelor
colonies. The young pups are curious, friendly, and enjoy playing
with each other and with the visitors who spend time with them.
