We all need a little break sometimes and this is no different for the Australian Sea Lion.
With rough seas and inclement weather, it is not uncommon for a Sea Lion to visit the shores of the Island to soak up some sunshine and re-energise for their next venture into the sea.
Today, this guy visited North Thomson Bay for a rest.
If you're wondering why there is a barrier around him? It is to not only provide a peaceful slumber for our Sea Lion, but for the safety of all our Island guests (human and marine mammal!). Sea Lions may look lazy when on land, but they can move quickly if they need too.
