Sea Lion Mom and Pup Seal Lions are born on land and are taught to swim by their mothers. The young pup is picked up by the back of the neck and is carried into the water by its mother. At first the pup struggles against the surf, but by the time it is a few months old it easily breaks through the surf without problem. Gardiner Bay, Espanola Island.
