Sea lions belong to the family Otariidae, which also includes fur seals. In five genera, there are six living species and one extinct species (the Japanese sea lion).
Sea lions are estimated to eat up to 8% of their body weight in a single meal (approximately 6.8–15.9 kg). In the ocean, sea lions can move at speeds of up to 30 knots (56 km/h) at the fastest. The Australian sea lion, Galápagos sea lion and New Zealand sea lion are all endangered species.
