M&M Playful Pinnipeds

Available Now

"Playful Pinnipeds" consists of two 22-minute episodes in the "Munching and Mating in the Macrocystis" cable TV series focusing on the California sea lion, the trained "seal" people see in zoos and circuses. This is a greatly revised version of the earlier "Playful Pinnipeds" DVD formatted as two separate episodes with revised narration and new footage acquired since the release of that DVD in 2006.

The first episode introduces the scientific order Pinnipedia which includes the eared seals, true seals and walruses and describes the differences between them. The general characteristics of the sea lion are described along with its geographic range, diet, feeding, diving, and other behavior.

In the second episode their reproductive behavior, population growth, historic and continuing threats to this species are covered.
