This is my favorite photo

Sea Lions and Fur Seals
... Did you know ...
Sea Lions of the Galapagos Islands gather in colonies on the sands and rocks
They feed primarily on sardines and can dive as deep as 100 meters
Sea lions feed during the day and spend hours sleeping on the beach
Life span is up to 20 years
... Did you know ...
Fur Seals are smaller than sea lions and are distinguised by their pointed noses and big, round eyes
Unlike sea lions, they feed at night (mostly on squid and small fish)
Visitors often mistake fur seals for seals
Seals do not appear anywhere in the Galapagos

Relaxing on the beach and enjoying the warm sun

Baby Boobies
... Did you know ...
We took this picture without a zoom lens!
