Galápagos sea lion (Zalophus wollebaeki)

The only beach on Genovesa was crowded with sea lions resting in the sun.

The fur seal is smaller with a shorter snout and bigger front flippers – which make them much better rock climbers than the sea lions. The fur seal prefers rocky coastline and cliffs with easy access to the deeper ocean and also prefers shade.
