One of the many South American sea lions (Otaria flavescens
) that hang around the fish stalls in the port of Punta del Este. Mostly males, they wait for either the public or the vendors to throw fish to them. Occasionally the seagulls venture to steal the food from their mouths… They offer a good show.
