Facts about Sea Lions

Posted On: 04-20-2018

Sea Lions are fascinating creatures, which is why America’s Family Pet Expo is happy to feature the Sea Lion Splash Show at the 2018 Expo April 27-29! These intelligent and amusing animals can balance balls, shoot hoops, dance, shake their flippers, and even do a handstand or two. You won’t want to miss this feature of America’s Family Pet Expo as it will be both entertaining and educational!

To help you understand more about sea lions, here are some fun facts:

  • Sea lions can see underwater because they have a reflective membrane at the back of the eye that acts like a mirror, bouncing the little light they find in the ocean back through the eye a second time.
  • A sea lion can typically remain underwater for 10 to 20 minutes at a time.
  • While swimming, sea lions can reach speeds of 18 miles per hour in the water, but only for a short time.
  • Sea Lions use their whiskers to help them navigate the dark ocean waters. Each long whisker, called a vibrissa, rotates around with the underwater currents, allowing the sea lion to “feel” any creatures swimming nearby.

To learn more about sea lions, attend Sea Lion Splash during America’s Family Pet Expo.  The Show will take place at the Park Plaza of the OC Fair & Event Center at the following times:

Friday, April 27th at 11:30 am, 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm
