A member of the eared seals family, sea lions are an extremely social and playful species that you can identify by their external ears. Sea lions are descended from land animals similar to bears but found their way back into the ocean millions of years ago. Sea lions are built for swimming, with streamlined bodies, powerful flippers, and flattened torsos. Once at risk of becoming extinct, sea lions are now the most successful and widely distributed carnivores in the world.
