12/20 PM - Isla Seymour Norte

We saw lots of sea lion colonies along the shore on North Seymour. Each colony has a dominant male and a bunch of females and cubs. In this picture you can spot 3 females feeding their pups.

The key differences between sea lions and seals are (a) Sea lions have visible ears (b) Seals cant support themselves on their front flippers (c) Seals swim with their back flippers while sea lions swim with their front flippers.
