Beachmaster





This is the alpha male -- known as the beachmaster -- of Gardner Bay. There was nothing remotely cute or cuddly about him, especially as he was seriously pissed off.

Another male sea lion was getting too close to the beach, and the beachmaster was baring his teeth and yelling very loudly in seal language about how he was going to kick some major butt if the other sea lion didn't head back out to sea pronto.

And since he'd obviously been in at least one fight recently, that wasn't an empty threat. Beachmaster is a job with very high turnover.
