I have been bitten by an adult female sea lion, luckily (or not...) it was on my thigh, which is more padded than my foot... left nice bruise marks though. Typically you wear long pants and rain slickers any time you are in the pen with the animals, the more protection the better... Once when I was 7 months pregnant, I had to scale the pen fence to escape an attacking sea lion. I escaped unscathed :biggrin2: .

Well,

Anything to help a poor, sick seal... the rescues were the most fun, it was kind of the thrill of outwitting the wild animal, while the beach-goers yell helpful advice (NOT). Once after finally rescuing a sea lion pup off of a jetty, a beach-goer asked why it took so long (I made three attempts and the animal kept swimming off the jetty, swimming around to the other side and climbing up the rocks. Finally I lunged with my hoop net and caught the little guy as he was diving into the water.), I gritted my teeth and walked away.

But yeah, I guess I do like living dangerously if it is for a purpose...

I did a double take when I read that too, but I'm sure that he meant the guy on the beach. Cephkid wouldn't call you a moron. :smile:

Well, the main reason I was offended was I said "He/She". You are CLEARLY female due to the name "cuttlegirl", emphasis on GIRL. I suppose you can't be blamed though, since I DID quote your ENTIRE message...

Anywho, just how big IS a seal "pup"? Small- for for a seal, anyway- I would guess, but how small is "small", in this case?

P.S., warning to anyone reading this: as I have just recently been set free from school, and am unsure of how I feel about it (probably shock/"blown happy-fuse" from an overload of joy), so I may tend to overreact...:biggrin2:

Okay, I'll admit it: I'm all toungue-in-cheek on this one.:wink:
