Sea Lion
The California sea lion is a member of the "eared seal" family. These pinnipeds are adept at leaping distances out of the water, and are often found sitting on top of rocks, floating docks and beams under fishing piers, and even balancing on floating buoys. Highly social, sea lions form groups of several hundred to several thousand animals in colonies onshore. They even stick together in the water. It's not unusual to see dozens of sea lions rafted up on the surface of the bay "jugging" with their flippers sticking up out of the water. Scientists suspect this behavior may aid in maintaining a warm internal body temperature.
