A baby sea lion is often called a pup. Giving birth to a pup is usually called ‘pupping’. The process is typically done on land. Pups can weigh a lot when they are born - up to thirteen pounds or so. The sea lion pup is quite the intelligent little thing. These animals are able to recognize their mother’s roars and barks in a crowd of hundreds or thousands, just like a human baby can find their own mother by her voice.
Sea lions often live in pods or colonies. These pods live around beaches, often in coastal areas so that they can have enough space for everyone to spread out and enjoy the view. Sea lions are often mistaken for seals, and often the biggest difference is that sea lions have ears while seals ears are little holes in their heads.
