ECOLOGY

Treasure none

Sea lions have a pointy, whiskered nose and somewhat long, narrow muzzle. The young pups are almost dog-like in profile. Another characteristic that defines the sea lion are their external ear-like flaps which distinguish them from common seals, which they are often confused with.

The fore-flippers have a short fur extending from the wrist to the middle of the dorsal fin surface, but other than that, the flippers are covered in black, leathery skin.

Both seals and sea lions are kept as pets in the Cerulean Seas, especially by selkies with whom they share much in common. Seals and sea lions can be trained to perform a variety of tricks and are quite adept at manipulating objects with their noses. Despite their clumsy appearance, they are surprisingly agile. They are usually content in captivity if they are given large living spaces and plenty of fish to eat.
