St Louis Zoo http://www.stlzoo.org/
Named #1 Zoo in America by Zagat and Parenting Magazines


California Sea Lion
Range: Pacific Coast of North America
Habitat: Ocean waters, sandy or rocky coastlines
Conservation Status: Common
Scientific Name: Zalophus californianus californianus

The playful, curious California sea lions are highly social animals. They live in groups or "harems," with an adult bull and 10-15 cows. During the summer-long breeding season, the animals collect by the thousands on isolated coastlines and islands. Females give birth to a single pup a year later. Sea lions spend much of their time in the ocean in search of herring, mackerel and squid. You can easily tell a sea lion from a seal by its external ear flaps, which seals do not have.

Did You Know?
A sea lion can fully rotate its hind flippers, allowing it to walk on land.

Forest Park is amazing with the Zoo, the History Museum, the Art Museum, the Planatarium and the Science Center among others.

I haven't been to the bowling museum yet but plan to go - it's right next to where old Busch stadium was.

3 hours in which direction?
