Besides the sea lions, yellow warblers, frigates and various species of finches can be seen. On the rocks, large Galapagos marine iguanas can be found, unique in the world. One can distinguish the male sea lions from the females by size. The male is usually bigger and stronger, weighing up to 250 kg as adults; they are also distinguished by a protrusion on the head. Socially, they are organized into colonies or harems. Each colony is composed of a dominant male and about 30 females with their cubs. Sea lions are animals with a strong territorial sense. Adult males defend their boundaries from other males. They spend much of the day watching over their territory and issuing a series of sounds and movements reaffirming their territorial power. Some may be aggressive to humans. You have to keep a safe distance.
