Hooker's Sea Lions.

When Sea Lion pups get older they leave their mothers after their mothers have taught them how to hunt for their own food and swim. There are a few thousand Sea Lions left in the world.

The beach is their safe place under the Rata tree, they sit under the trees to cool down.

Sea lions prefer squid to eat, but they also eat fish eggs and octopus. Sea lions can weigh up to 400kg, imagine if they sat on you, you wouldn’t be able to stand up and also breath.
