Two members of the endemic Galápagos Sea Lion sub-species, photographed in their natural habitat on the rocky shoreline of Mosquera island. Mosquera is a free island near a major airport in the Galápagos, so it’s often the first place visitors encounter these playful mammals.
Most islands in the Galápagos host at least one colony of sea lions. Their barks are one of the archipelago’s most recognizable sounds.
