Steller Sea Lions - British Columbia.

Spent last Sunday diving with Steller Sea Lions at Norris Rocks, near Hornby Island British Columbia. These sea lions weigh upwards of 900 pounds, with the bulls tipping the scales at 2,000 pounds. An adult male Stellar sea-lion's skull, jaw & teeth are very similar to - as in almost indistinguishable from- those of a large Grizzly bear... BIG strong teeth!
