Only the road in this case is Scotland’s Forth Estuary, an arm of the North Sea near Edinburgh, and the puppy is an energetic gray seal, probably a juvenile. After tailing kayaker Alistair Forrest and his companion for about a mile, the seal took advantage of a break in the paddling to hop aboard Forrest's kayak. There, the sleek marine mammal sprawled out as if ready to come along. Forrest and his companion voice their amazement at the unplanned wildlife encounter.

3 Male Lions Go For 1 Lioness!
 
01:28
Happy Valentine's Day to all the lions watching! This has definitely got to be a once in a lifetime sighting as we have never seen such an extraordinary ritual happen before. BOOK YOUR SAFARI HERE: http://bit.ly/SafariBookingsLS Field Guide at &beyond Kirkmans Kamp, in the Sabi Sands, Matthew Smith (25), recalls the version of the event to Latestsightings.com: “The Eyrefield pride have had a torrid 2017, losing 5 pride members to other lions. Only 2 females remain and the future of the pride lies in their hands. They have been continually running away from and avoiding any males, so we were extremely excited to find the younger lioness with a male one morning. That evening there was a lot of roaring around the lodge and the next morning we found these 3 males with the same young lioness. They had chased off the other male and were now all with the female in quick succession. Send in your wildlife video here, and earn money: https://www.latestsightings.com/partnership I was initially very excited just to see the lioness doing this with the males, because we had been waiting a very long time for this. For a pride take over and hopefully some cubs in the near future. But what happened then was just unbelievable. I have heard of lionesses doing this with more than one male so as to confuse them who fathered the cubs, thereby ensuring the cubs safety. But I have never heard of or seen a female with more than one male in such quick succession and in the presence of the other males. The 3 males are brothers and seemed almost content with sharing. My only possible reasoning for this might be because of their age. These males are close to 5 years of age and therefore still fairly young and may not have established dominance amongst one another. She did this with these males over a period of 3 days, every 15 minutes or so. She did, however, have a preference for 2 of the males, the ones with slightly fuller manes. This was one of the rarest and most unique sightings I have ever experienced. I have never heard of or seen anything like this”.

Mother Polar Bear, Desperate for Food, Tests Walrus | National Geographic

In late July, 2015, they were traveling through Hinlopen Strait, west of the largest island, Spitsbergen—an impossible route some summers, when pack ice blocks passage. But that summer, ice was especially sparse, making hunting harder for polar bears. These apex predators favor waiting at the sea ice’s edge, striking seals as they approach. A few days earlier, the Wilkinson family had been farther north, near the ice. There, bears looked healthy. But the scene just after midnight on July 23 was desperate. Mother and cub were struggling, skin hanging loose. According to Jon Aars, of the Norwegian Polar Institute, the cub, seven or eight months old, was likely to die if its mother didn’t eat soon. She probably wasn’t lactating. Wilkinson saw the bear sniff the air, picking up something of interest. This thin female couldn’t attack a healthy, full-grown walrus. A carcass would solve their problem. If the walrus were weak or sick, predation might be an option. But that walrus was alive and well. The situation was unworkable. The search for food went on.

Patagonia Full Documentary

Full documentary about Patagonia, a unique and irreplaceable wildlife refuge in South America. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries Millions of years ago, the powerful forces that lie dormant inside the Earth pushed up the coast of the region of Patagonia, in Argentina. The coast was transformed, and a new peninsula rose from the sea. The cliffs along this shore still today retain the traces of their past beneath the ocean, fossils that testify to the amazing variety of life forms which, already in distant times, inhabited these waters. Today, this profusion of life still exists, and forms the basis of the diet of the thousands of marine mammals that every year come here to breed. The Valdés Peninsula has become a unique refuge for those marine animals that require solid land on which to bring their young into the world. Sea lions and elephant seals periodically occupy its beaches, in an annual cycle which has continued, uninterrupted, for thousands of years. Like them, the southern right whales also come here each year to procreate. The peninsula is today one of the last places on Earth where these colossuses of the sea can find refuge. As every year, when June comes around, the southern right whales reach the calm waters of the Nuevo and San José Gulfs. They remain here until November, when they move to the cold waters of the South Atlantic, in search of krill, a tiny crustacean which forms their basic diet. Fourteen metres long and weighing 35,000 kilos, they are the largest of the visitors to the peninsula. The origin of such abundance lies in the strategic location of this land. The Valdés peninsula is in the region of North Patagonia, in Argentina, in an area where warm sea currents from the north meet colder ones from the South, thereby creating ideal conditions for the development of a great diversity of marine life. A very different situation from that on land, where the flora and fauna must struggle to survive in a far more hostile environment. Over 100 species of austral birds nest along the coast and come to the beach in search of food. Alongside them live the South American sea lions, also called sea wolves, or fur seals, due to the clump of fur around the head of the males. The total population on the Valdés Peninsula is estimated to be around 20,000, the majority of them females who each year give birth to hundreds of pups on these beaches. The beaches of Punta Norte are also a meeting point for another member of the seal family: the elephant seal. The elephant seals are the largest members of the seal family in the world. The females can weigh up to 500 kilos, but even they are lightweights compared to the male. He is almost 5 metres long, and weighs around 2,500 kilos, almost ten times as much as a sea lion. The Valdés Peninsula is today a unique and irreplaceable refuge for the wildlife of South America. Human presence, the first signs of which date back 3,200 years, has not managed to destroy this natural paradise. After many years of hunting and cattle farming, the Argentinean government decided to protect the Peninsula, and turned it into a Wildlife Reserve. Another Eden had been saved.

Gigantic sea lions play with scuba divers
 
01:33
Steller sea lions inhabit much of the coast of British Columbia. Passing early spring days by sunbathing on the rocks off Vancouver Island, they also love dipping in and out of the cool ocean to cool off… they also love to play with local scuba divers. Scuba diving with sea lions is an incredible experience, an animal encounter like no other. You can’t wander into the middle of a herd of buffalo in Yellowstone Park, but off Hornby Island, near Vancouver Island, British Columbia you can definitely wander into a raft of beautiful Steller sea lions. The steller sea lion is the largest of the eared seals. Females weigh around 500 - 700 lbs, whereas the larger males can reach a whopping 1000 pounds and have even been known to reach an incredible 2000 pounds! Males have broader, higher foreheads, flatter snouts and darker, tuftier hair around their large necks. When diving with steller sea lions it is incredibly important to be fully aware that you are in their habitat, and their environment. Scuba diving and snorkelling with steller sea lions is great fun, not because you’re there to see them, but because they want to see you. They are very inquisitive, and seem almost more interested in checking out the humans than the humans are of checking out the sea lions. They will rush towards divers as an intimidating herd, before diving down at the last second. Upon descending and reaching a depth of about 20-30 feet just off the shore of Hornby, once the sea lions spot the divers they come to say hi. At times they come darting out of the emerald green water at warp speed, turning at the last second and disappearing behind a diver without a trace. Never far away, the sea lions will be hovering vertically above a divers head, basically laughing until the divers clumsily turns trying to find more sea lions to watch. They’ll whiz past again, this time closer, blowing bubbles, opening their mouth nice and wide for the diver to see all his teeth. Swimming away the sea lion may politely slap a diver in the face with a fin. They also love coming nose to nose with divers, showing off their gorgeous eyes and in that second, connecting with that diver in a way that very few people ever get to do. Scuba diving with sea lions in British Columbia can be a little intimidating. However, the local dive shops that offer these excursions have many years of experience in these waters, and know exactly where, and when to put divers, or snorkelers in the water. They also will inform the divers new to this experience just what to expect and to not panic. Relax and take in the whole experience. The sea lions love seeing sparkly and dangly things, so the divers must be aware of what they have attached to their suits.Yes the sea lions may bite as well, but in a friendly testing way, much like a puppy gnaws on your fingers. One dive with a sea lion will teach any human more about their habitat, lives and existence than any text book or documentary. To come nose to nose with a 1000 pound sea creature and know he means to cause you no harm, will give you more respect for the ocean and it’s inhabitants than any museum or lecture. This is definitely a bucket list item for any scuba diving enthusiast! Source & embed code: https://rumble.com/v756r1-1000-pound-sea-lions-play-with-divers.html.

Sea Lions
 
00:55
California Sea Lions at Pier 39 in San Francisco, California. California Sea Lions have always been present in San Francisco Bay. They started to haul out on docks of Pier 39 in September 1989. Before that they mostly used Seal Rock for that purpose. Ever since September 1989 the number of sea lions on Seal Rock has been steadily decreasing, while their number on Pier 39 has generally increased. Some people speculate that sea lions moved to docks because of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, but the earthquake occurred months after the first sea lions had arrived at Pier 39. It is likely that the sea lions feel safer inside the Bay. Although the reason for their migration to the pier is unclear, the refurbishing of the docks in September 1989 required the removal of all boats from that area, leaving large open spaces for the sea lions to move into. Once the project was completed, boat owners returned, but did their best to navigate around the sea lions; no efforts were made to encourage the new guests to leave. By the end of that year, less than a dozen sea lions frequented the docks at Pier 39. By January 1990, their numbers had increased to 150 animals. Owners of the 11 boats docked there began to complain about having to avoid the animals who can weigh up to half a ton, and odor and noise complaints began to pour in. Press releases caught national attention, and the sea lions began to attract tourists. Advice from The Marine Mammal Center was to abandon the docks to the animals, and to relocate the boats elsewhere. Although fluctuations in the number of sea lions at Pier 39 are dramatic, as many as 1,701 (Thanksgiving Week, 2009) have been officially reported at one time, many of whom are recognizable to researchers and others, and some of whom have been unofficially named. Volunteers and staff at The Marine Mammal Store and Interpretive Center monitor the sea lion population each day, and educational information is provided to tourists who visit from around the world. Scientists continue to collect information there, adding to knowledge about sea lion health, dietary habits, and behavior. In November 2009 the more than 1,701 (Thanksgiving Week, 2009) sea lions that had lived at the pier began to leave, and by late December 2009 nearly all were gone; a similar flux in population occurs annually, with the animals returning in the spring. Although the reason for their seasonal appearance and departure is not known for certain, according to Jeff Boehm, executive director of the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, "Most likely, they left chasing a food source," anchovies and sardines. A handful of sea lions did return in February, and by late May several hundred could once again be seen on Pier 39. It remains unknown exactly where they went and why. However, in December 2009, nearly 4,000 sea lions that were identified as members of the California sub-species were seen outside Oregon's Sea Lion Caves, which meant that they were likely the sea lions from Pier 39.

The Sea Lion Sessions of Sausalito features sea lions in a bizarre synchronized swimming display, holding their heads and flippers out of the water. Each sea lion pod consists of about 5 to 10 sea lions which appear to have one dominant male showing protective behavior. Sea lion pups seem to be under the protection of the elders. Plenty of snuggling and nudging, some bickering occurs within pods. The sea lion groups cruise by with heads and flippers out of the water, the occasional belly rising up, lounging in the sun.

The sea lions are trained using positive reinforcement, and when they perform a behavior on cue -- such as jumping, climbing, flipper waves and even sitting still – the keeper reinforces that behavior with a reward of fish. The sea lions receive the majority of their diet during three training sessions throughout the day. This training is also helpful for the sea lion so it can participate in its own health care. For instance, sea lion "Dixi" will allow a trainer to brush her teeth. The First Bank Sea Lion Show "Spring Training" kicks off Saturday, March 14, 2015 with special guest Brad Thompson, former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher and current co-host of "The Fast Lane" on 101ESPN, tossing out the "first fish" at the 1 p.m. show.

Bull Sea Lion Challenge

This is what dominant aggressive behavior looks like in a Bull Stellar Sea Lion. This is an adolescent bull who was pumped up on testosterone and not happy with me being too close to his lady friends. You can see the fresh battle wounds on this guy from fights with other bulls and my only defense against this 700 lb animal was to act as submissive and non threatening as I could. Once he established who was bigger he quickly lost interest, though it took a good while for my heart to slide back down from my throat.
