Napping Sea Lion in the territory of an abalone farm (Monterey, USA)


Napping sea lion





During my visit to the abalone farm in Monterey, California, I took this picture for this napping sea lion. The abalone grow-out cages are located in the water several meters under the napping animal who reached the farm along with the morning high tide leaving the animal behind in the low tide. There is no worries about the abalone for having sea lions who are not abalone eaters in contrast with the sea otters; the abalone lovers. Surprisingly, nether our existence and talk nor the camera flash were disturbing sleeping animal who can either wait for the afternoon hide tide to leave or simply jump in the water at any time.
