It’s hard to really gauge the immensity of sea lions until you are right up close to them. They are truly HUGE. The females are easily 6 feet long and over 200 pounds, the males are even bigger. But until you are up close to them, they don’t seem that large.
And yet, they move with the grace of a ballerina when they are under water.
This sea lion liked to swim in circles in front of the glass, showing off a bit I think. She impressed me both with her size and her grace.
