External ear flaps, lengthy foreflippers, the ability to move on all fours, short, dense hair, and a large chest and belly are the distinguishing features of a sea lion.
Sea lions are members of the Otariidae family, which also includes fur seals. There are six current species and one extinct species in each of the five genera (the Japanese sea lion).
Sea lions are known to consume up to 8% of their body weight in a single meal (about 6.8-15.9 kg). At their fastest, sea lions may travel at speeds of up to 30 knots (56 km/h) in the ocean. The Australian, Galapagos, and New Zealand sea lions are all endangered species.
