Getting close to these beautiful mammals
Sea lions are attracted to bays and warm coasts with calm waters. It’s because of this that the Sea of Cortez has become the home to several colonies in the Cabo region. When you visit these friendly mammals in Land’s End, you’ll easily notice how they’re accustomed to visiting travelers. They’ve become sociable and friendly animals. Sometimes they even pose for pictures! They seem to enjoy the company of people, so you should be very respectful of their ecosystem and colonies. It’s because of this sociable behavior characterizing them that helps them adapt easily to live around every comfortable rock they can find. Also, notice that they’re very intelligent animals, think of them as sea dogs, with the same comparable charisma.
Tips to identify age and sexes of Sea Lions in Cabo:
- Adults: Males are huge, almost seven feet long sometimes and weighing around 850 pounds. They also have a ‘’crest’’ that stands out almost 2 inches at the top of their heads. Females, on the other hand, are about a third smaller than males and do not have the crest. Also, females are of a lighter brown color than males.
- Younglings: Sea lions that are one to three years old may look like females because of their lighter color and their smaller size, identifying without getting mixed up, can get complicated. But hey, it’s a start!
- Calves: These are unmistakable for their small size, which is around 20-30 inches, and for their location. You’ll always find them not far from the shore, as they’re not very good swimmers just yet.
So, better be ready with binoculars and a good camera, because you’ll want to have something to remember this experience, for life. Take on this great adventure, if ecotourism is your thing and you enjoy nature, don’t miss this opportunity. This is the adventure of a lifetime with marine mammals and amazing landscapes.
