Hooker Sea Lion



The Hooker Sea Lion can only be find on the beach. The pups are born in the middle of December before Christmas and their mothers teach them how to swim on the rock pools.



The Sea Lion’s favourite place is underneath the Rata Tree because the trees keep them away from the wind.

When the Sea Lions are hungry they go and eat Squid, fish and octopus. The males have black/dark brown coats and the female Sea Lions have a lighter colour coat.

Some of the Sea Lions get killed by sharks and whales when they are born and so they need to try and get to Auckland Island to have their pups and to shelter beneath the Rata trees.
