Childbirth wore out this mother sea lion, with her pup only a few hours old.
Mom & Pup
A day-old sea lion pup with mom. Red rock crab in the background. Isla Española.
This sea lion pup is only a few hours old - the placenta has not been scavenged by birds yet. It's only one day old and later in the day will get its first swimming lesson.
