Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag

22

From Rábida.

This male sea lion is a beachmaster, patrolling this stretch of coast as the waves zigzag in.  You can tell he is a male by his large size and the shape of his head (his forehead kind of has a bump).  They can be aggressive towards people that get too close.  This guy had a very very small harem (we saw only one female with two small pups on the beach), but he will still defend it from other males.
