Sea Lion Teeth

Sea Lion Teeth California Sea Lion (Zalophus californianus)
Astoria, Oregon ~ October 20, 2007

If you've always wondered what a sea lion's teeth look like, today's animal photo is just for you. Corinna Bechko of The Frog Bag tells me that one sure way to distinguish sea lions from seals is that a sea lions can bite you unpside down. I didn't ask this dozing pinneped if that's true, but I'll assume that it is. In this position, you can also see the direction the sea lion's nostrils close when it dives under water.
