Baby sea lions are some of the most adorable and cute creatures in the world. If you want to see the pups, you should visit the Galapagos Islands in August and the following months—it's the period when the majority of them are born. However, you can witness them all year round.
The females give birth to a single pup once a year and take care of them up to three years, so it might happen that you see two pups of different ages around one mum. A mother stays with a newborn sea lion for five days, and then she leaves it for a while to go fishing. In a meantime, one female sea lion takes care of all the pups in a kind of nursery in shallow waters. Sometimes males assist in defending the nurseries from sharks or other dangers. After the pups reach five months, they start to learn fishing.
Soon young sea lions will begin to get food on their own.
