Brawny Sea Pups
Diving with Steller sea lions is like playing rugby with a 500-pound, 7-foot animal that just doesn’t have any respect for one’s personal boundaries.
Their ability to slam their massive bodies against yours while checking out your head with their canine teeth can be a bit unnerving.
But being with these Steller sea lions, Eumetopias jubatus, is one of the most enjoyable interactions between me and any sea life I have ever had.
