At birth pups are coloured silvery/fawn and as they mature females retain this colouration, whereas males turn darker brown and they develop thick skin and fur on their neck.
Australian Sea Lions can be found along the coast lines of western and southern Australia.
Australian Sea Lions feed on fish, lobster, squid and octopus.
Australian Sea Lions have a gestation period of approximately 18 months, which includes a 5 - 6 month period of delayed implantation, and they give birth to a single pup. The pup is weaned at 15 - 18 months old and they reach sexual maturity at 3 - 6 years of age.
