Deal of the Day


Sea Lion, All Washed Up


SealPhoto From, June 2003.
Before using our pictures, please review our usage policy.


Photograph Notes: In 2003, we finally got a picture of a sea lion up close. Very, very close. In fact, this California sea lion washed up dead on one of our beaches. We actually disturbed some of our local turkey vultures that were starting to feed on it. It was a about eight feet long and probably weighed about 300 pounds. This particular sea lion was of interest to some of the local conservation groups who came out to see if they could determine the cause of death -- there is some concern that the extremely powerful naval sonar is so loud that it is causing sea mammals to lose their hearing and perish.
