Seals / Sea Lions on the Rocks Sand Ornament

Dimension: 4" x 3.25"

Have you ever wondered about the main differences between seals and their "second cousins," the sea lions?  Both seals and sea lions, together with the walrus, are pinnipeds, which means "fin footed" in Latin.  Sea lions have small flaps for outer ears. The "earless" or "true" seals lack external ears altogether. You have to get very close to see the tiny holes on the sides of a seal’s sleek head.  Sea lions are noisy. Seals are quieter, vocalizing via soft grunts. Both species spend time both in and out of the water, seals are better adapted to live in the water than on land. 

Finally, seals are less social than their sea-lion cousins. They spend more time in the water than sea lions do and often lead solitary lives in the wild, coming ashore together only once a year to meet and mate.  Now you know what I looked up.
