Sea Lions

Patagonian Sea Lions (Otaria flavescens) are perhaps the archetypal Sea Lion in appearance. Males have a very large head with a well-developed mane, making them the most lionesque of the eared seals. They are twice the weight of females. The Patagonian Sea Lions are found on the Ecuadorian, Peruvian, Chilean, Falkland Islands, Argentinean, Uruguayan and Southern Brazilian coasts.

Diego is the current Resident Patagonian Sea Lion at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. Click here to read about him.

Sadly his brother, Noito, passed away in November 2022.
