17 Sea Lion Near Fish Market in Puerto Montt, Chile

The range of the South American sea lion extends from northern Peru to Cape Horn so it is common to see colonies along the Chilean coastline. Called otaria flavescens by scientists and lobo marino by locals, this enormous aquatic mammal can grow up to nine feet and over 700 pounds. This Patagonian sea lion was searching for handouts at the fish market at Angelmó Bay in Puerto Montt, Chile. This area also provides the fresh catch of the day to humans like this cocineria (kitchen restaurant) on stilts (called palafitos).
