Stellar sea lions Featured January Print

Stellar sea lions

Sea lions. A group of Northern or Stellar sea lions, Eumetopias jubata, on a rocky shoreline. Sea lions are carnivorous marine mammals which come ashore only to reproduce and molt. Their limbs have evolved into flippers; they can turn their rear flippers forwards in order to walk on land. This species is the largest type of sea lion, the males weighing up to 1, 100 kilograms. They are practically hairless except for a mane. Their meat is palatable and they form an important food source for eskimos. As a result, Stellar sea lions are extremely cautious of humans and will flee into the sea if approached. Photographed at Carmanah Point in British Columbia, Canada

Coloured illustration of sectioned brain in head

Brain. Computer-coloured illustration of a human head in side view, sectioned to show the brain and its blood vessels. The face is at right; cavities (pink) of the nose, mouth and pharynx are seen. Cerebral blood vessels (at top) branch within the cerebrum (yellow) of the brain. The large cerebrum of the brain is responsible for memory, conscious thought and voluntary movement. The cerebellum is a tree-shaped structure (blue/pink) at ear level. At the top of the yellow spinal cord is a swelling that forms the brainstem responsible for primitive reflexes. Illustration by the Italian anatomist Paolo Mascagni (1755-1815), author of the famous treatise: "Vasorum Lymphaticorum Corporis Humani"
