Unlike seals, sea lions can turn their back flippers to help them walk quickly.
Sea lions can run faster than a human on fairly smooth ground. Sometimes sea lions will trample a path through long grass
between the ocean and their breeding ground. The path is used as an escape route into the ocean if anything threatening
comes to the breeding grounds. Anyone walking along these paths would have to keep looking behind them in case a group of
sea lions came running down the path.
Sea lions are extremely agile, able to leap over rocks and small cliffs, the shock is taken by the layers of fat and
blubber on their belly and chest.
