California sea lions vary greatly in size depending on the gender of the animal.  They eat both fish and mollusks like octopus, and hunt during day and night.  The western coast of North America is the home of the California sea lion.  Its range extends from British Columbia down to the southern end of California.  California sea lions are social animals, living in groups that grow especially large during breeding season.
