Sea Lion play
Gordon Lamont was diving near Hornby Island and took some fun photos of local Sea Lions. "The Sea Lions are all young adults and interact with divers just like a pack of puppies - except that they are wild animals weighing approximately 300 lbs. They explore with their whiskers and mouths, and will often "gang up" on a lucky diver in a group of 10 or more! There are hundreds of them on the island which they would guard ferociously if people tried to land. In the water, they don't see divers as a threat (provided we don't get too close to the island) at all and seem to use as entertainment. They can get a bit boisterous but at no time threatening - not even when chewing on my head!" See more on the Listeners' Lens.
