5 L All About Sea Lions

  1. 1. All About Sea Lions By: Jenna
  2. 2. About the Author Hi my name is Jenna and I’m  going to tell you about myself. My favorite movie is Flight 29 Down. My favorite song is “Incredible.” Also my favorite sport is Volleyball. I’m writing about the sea lion  because some of them are getting transmitters put into their backs because they keep eating the fish that the fishermen fish for and they are mad. Also they are cute.
  3. 3. Who am I?  My animal is a Sea Lion and it can stay under water for ten to fifteen minutes at a time. Sea Lions are great swimmers too, and can get as fast as 25 miles per hour for a short amount of time. This helps Sea Lions escape from their enemies: Killer Whales, and sharks. Male Sea lions can be several times as big as a female Sea Lion. Also the bump on the Male’s head is called a “crest.”
  4. 4. The Early Years  Young Sea Lions are called pups and they are born with their eyes open and they are born in June or July. Also their stomach is ready for it’s mother’s milk. The milk has a lot of fat and this helps the pup grow the blubber to keep it warm. At just a few weeks old Sea Lion pups are ready for their first swimming and fishing lessons. They also must learn how to stay away from sharks and to survive storms at sea.
  5. 5. Habitat Sweet Habitat  Sea Lions live on rocky and sandy beaches of coastal islands and mainland shores. They may go to some sandbars, sheltered caves, pools, and structures such as piers, and buoys.
  6. 6. What’s on the Menu?  Sea Lions eat octopus, squid, and all different kinds of fish like anchovies, salmon, and other fish. In captivity they are usually fed smelt and herring. Wild Sea Lions often feed fairly eating 5% to 8% of their body weight each day, which is between 15-35 pounds of food.
  7. 7. Making Tracks  Sea Lion tracks look kind of like the tracks to the side. The middle part is the stomach that drags along because the Sea Lion’s flippers dig into the sand and pulls the body along the sand until it gets to the water or to the place it wants to go.
  8. 8. Simply Irresistible  The California Sea Lions are the sea lions seen in animal shows or circuses. A group of sea lions is called a raft. Also sea lions are usually different shades of brown. Males are usually darker than females.
  9. 9. Where in the World?  Most Sea Lions live in North America, along the coast of Mexico. Also they like it where it’s warm and they like hanging out on beaches along the coast of California and Mexico.
  10. 10. Did you know? Sea Lions are pregnant for 1. 10 to 11 months. Sea Lions are known to 2. feed on seals. Sea Lions weigh 12 to 14 3. pounds at birth. Sea Lions have ear flaps, 4. Seals do not.
  11. 11. Fun Fact!  Sea Lions have three claws on the back of each flipper.
