29 Sea Lion at Darwin Bay on Genovesa Island in Galápagos, Ecuador

When expedition cruise ships arrive at Isla Genovesa, sea lions are among the first to greet the curious as they disembark from their Zodiac and begin exploring the white coral beach at Darwin Bay. This large male Galápagos sea lion – they can weigh up to 800 pounds – was accustomed to being the dominate bull. Yet because males cannot eat while territorial, they become weak within a few months. So, this sea lion is resting until he can reclaim superiority over his colony on another day.
