9 Cool Galapagos Sea Lion Facts for Animal Lovers
Hey there! Do you want to learn about the amazing Galapagos sea lion? Galapagos sea lions are so cool! They are like real life mermaids in the water; quick and graceful. On land, though, it's a different story. Although they may still pose quite a threat if angered, they are generally slow, clumsy, and very… very… sleep-py-yy…. Although Galapagos sea lions are very cute, they can be very dangerous and territorial, especially around mating season.
Actually, sea lions and seals are two different animals. Differences include 1 sea lions have external ear flaps, 2 sea lions walk on land using all four flippers seals bounce on their bellies and 3 sea lions use their front flippers to swim seals use their hind flippers. Great white, hammerhead and blue sharks, as well as orcas, occasionally hunt sea lions. Sea lions can swim faster by gliding on the surface of the water. We can determine their age by counting growth layers in their teeth, just like the rings in a tree trunk. Sea lions eat many things.

On the tips of waves that surge onto the shores of the Galapagos Islands, their dark torpedo shapes can be seen gliding until the wave breaks. The life of a sea lion retains a constant rhythm: swim out of danger, chase, eat, frolic, sleep, breed and repeat. A few sources espouse the idea that the sea lion got its name because they have whiskers and they rule the sea. Another source claims the name sea lion caught on because they are agile carnivorous underwater hunters. They have scary canine teeth, primarily used to catch fish. In the water, sea lions use their front flippers to propel themselves and their hind flippers for steering.
