Wildlife Wednesday: Galápagos Sea Lions

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I thought of presenting the pictures of the Galapagos Sea lions in their togetherness. They live in a colony where they do activities as a group from sleeping, playing and of course, swimming. In the colony, there is one dominated male and several females. However, the female is not considered as harem as they can join and leave the colony at any time as they like. Freedom of movement, I guess 😉

Did I say they like to sleep together? A lot!

Even on the rocks. I guess, as long as they are together, they will feel comfortable sleeping just everywhere!

Swimming together is also common to see in the colony of the Galapagos Sea Lions.



But, from all of the togetherness among the sea lions, my favorite part is to watch the mother and her pups. Nothing beats the love of parenthood even in the animal’s kingdom. Sweet! Happy Valentine’s Day!
