California Sea Lion at the Auckland Zoo (New Zealand)

Sea lions appear to "fly" through the water using their front flippers to pull them. They use their back flippers as a rudder.
On land, sea lions move by using all four flippers. This is different from seals, which drag themselves along with their front flippers.
Sea lion family groups have one male (a bull) and a harem of females.
