An automotive comparison

Adult male sea lions are often compared to the size of a car – as this image from the National Marine Mammal Laboratory shows! Crazy big, huh? It’s an unforgettable spectacle that you must see to believe. Right now the Steller sea lions are out on the rocks north of Año Nuevo Island. Come on out to the telescopes at the Bight Beach viewing area to see these roaring beasts for yourself!

Have you visited the elephant seals at Año Nuevo? They’re just as big!
