The animal of the day is the Sea Lion. (Did you know: Not to be confused with seals, Sea Lions are much more mobile on land as their flippers can rotate much more than seals can.

They can move so well on land as a matter of fact, that they can out run a human [you]! And in the water they will straight up embarrass Michael Phelps as they can swim up to 25mph.

The life expectancy of sea lions shows one of the biggest divides between males and females with females living almost twice as long as males. Males live to be about 18, but females can live on to be 30 plus years!

Females live longer because they get to cuddle with the cutest pups ever!
