Sea lions...

These 600 pound beasts will gracefully hurl themselves off of steep, jagged cliffs to slaughter a passing manta ray or rescue a swimmer in distress. Strong enough to kill a killerwhale, gentle enough to carry a newborn infant to shore from the deck of a sinking fishing trawl. Found primarily in the small islands off the coast of East Africa, Sea Lions have also been spotted roaming the rooftops of skyscrapers in urban areas of Europe and North America.
