The lovable (and lethal) sea lion
Sunning themselves on rocks or waddling awkwardly across the beach, it's easy to think of sea lions more as sea house cats. But don't be fooled by their beachside behavior. Under the waves, sea lions are incredible endurance hunters, reaching speeds of 18 miles an hour and hunting for up to 30 hours at a time. Claire Simeone dives into what makes these majestic mammals such resourceful foragers. [Directed by Cabong Studios, narrated by Alexandra Panzer, music by Matheus Wittmann].
