|During a period of social activity among several
family groups of killer whales, a young sea lion is curious
and swims with the whales. The head of the sea lion is out of
the water on the right side of the whale's fin. Normally sea
lions are prey of the whales, but the killer whales were not
interested in feeding and instead were very playful and the
sea lion may have sensed that and joined in.
