Australian Sea Lion Graphic

  • Australian sea lions are members of the ‘eared seal’ group and have a small external ear.
  • They have a third eyelid! It’s clear so they can still see while protecting their eye at the same time.
  • Their heart rate falls to 5 beats per minute while diving underwater!
  • When they’re underwater, their nostrils and ears close completely?
