    Here are mine. I will mail them on Saturday or Monday.

    Baby Fur Seal.jpg Baby Fur Seal. There are nine species of fur seals. Fur seals are more closely related to sea lions than true seals. The fur seals of the northern Pacific are Callorhinus ursinus.

    Galapagos Sea Lion.jpg Galapagos Sea Lion. Zalophus wollebarki. This sea lion lives and breeds in the Galapagos Islands. This is the smallest of the sea lion species. When I was in the Galapagos and we would be walking on the beach we had to watch where we were going or else we would have stumbled on sea lions basking in the sun.

    New Seal Lion Pup with Mother.jpg New Sea Lion Pup with Mother. Sea lion pups are completely dependent on their mothers for the first six months and are not completely weaned until almost a year old.

    Steller Sea Lion.jpg Stellar Sea Lion. Eumetopias jubatus. This sea lion is found in the northern Pacific. It is the largest of the eared seals.

    Jo, I love your cards and the information you provided, I have to say I am very jealous because I have always wanted to go to the Galapagos Islands and haven't made it yet!

    Hi!
    Just finished the 4 cards for the swap! Sincerely hope they will work!!!
    20220612_162042.jpg
    1. Boreal Seal - Pencils on Black paper. My scanner didn't helped me and turned out darker than expected... few ref of white cubs used.
    20220612_162056.jpg
    2. Lazyness - Monachu Monachus seals are an endangered species of Sardinia, Italy, so I made a card dedicated to them! Few Ref used. Copic on paper.
    20220612_162110.jpg
    3. Star Seal - Based on the Cetus constellation, because in the original myth, Cetus was a sea monster with head and front paws of an animal and the body and tail of a fish: I obviously thought to a seal! Which turned out a little bit kawaii than suppesed, but that is! Copic on paper.
    20220612_162124.jpg
    4. Leopard Seal - A seal I really like, lazing in sunset lights! Few ref used. Copic on paper.

    Sincerely hope you like!!!
    Sincerely sorry for the dark n1... scanner has darkened all!!!!
