California sea lions.  Mammals of the Baltic Sea

In the Dolphinarium there are a couple of California sea lions living together with the dolphins. The California sea lions were brought to Klaipėda from The Duisburg Zoo, Germany. California sea lions belong to the class of mammals, the order of pinnipeds and the suborder of eared seals. Males can attain a weight of up to 300 kg, while females are three times smaller. The shape of the body is cylindrical. Therefore, lions are very agile in water and capable of quick movement on land. California sea lions feed on a wide variety of fish and cephalopod molluscs.
