19 Hauling-out at Darwin Bay Beach on Genovesa in Galápagos, EC

Sea lions and fur seals are commonly seen socializing, barking and sleeping on beaches and rock ledges throughout the Galápagos Islands. The practice is called hauling-out. They typically congregate by gender. The females band together with their pups under the watchful eye of the dominate bull. The young bachelors form a different colony. Often you will spot a solo older male like this one resting in the sunshine.
