Like other ocean dwelling mammals, the Sea Lion’s ancestors lived on land. Sea lions are related to whales and dolphins, all creatures thought to share an ancestor that moved from land back into water, a seemingly counterintuitive move that begins to make sense when considering how the oceans have changed over millions of years. The recent discovery of a 5-million-year-old web-footed mammal that spent time on land and in water lends credence to the theory, as transitional figures often do.
