Playing with Sea Lions

Can you see that this cute little sea lion is holding a rock in his mouth? There are also  some rocks scattered in front of him. He is showing me the rock he and his friend are playing with! They swam in circles around each other, threw a rock down, and then picked one up. They were swimming around so fast that the torn bits of seaweed swirled around them like leaves in a whirlwind. I played with them with the rocks for about 10m minutes. They can freely swim around and play holding one breath, while I am taking so many breaths from my tank…  lol The sea lions at Santa Barbara Island is so cute and playful.
