Steller sea lion

The Steller sea lion (Eumetopias jubatus) are also known as the northern sea lion and Steller’s sea lion. Males are distinguished from females by broader, higher foreheads, flatter snouts, and darker, slightly tuftier hair around their large necks, giving them a maned appearance. Their Latin name translates roughly as “maned one with the broad forehead”. Steller sea lions are known for their curiosity and playfulness, they frequently visit our boats as we watch them on the rock out croppings along the shore.
