Sea lions are any of seven species in six genera of modern pinnipeds including one extinct one (the Japanese sea lion). Sea lions are characterized by the presence of external ear pinnae or flaps, long front flippers, and the ability to walk on four flippers on land. Their range extends from the subarctic to tropical waters of the global ocean in both the northern and southern hemispheres with the notable exception of the Atlantic Ocean. They are generally found in shallow waters of coastal areas of both with abundant food resources.

AnswerSea Lions originally lived in the northern Pacific and slowly moved to the south Pacific. Sea lions are seldom found in the Arctic and never found in the Atlantic Ocean.

The California sea lion can be found along the coast of California and Mexico.

The South American species is found mostly in the southern half of the continent with colonies found from southern Brazil to Chile and Peru. The best known are those of the Falkland Islands. Two other species are found in the Southern Hemisphere. The Australian sea lion and the New Zealand sea lion.
