This blog is named after my dog, Dino the wonder dog. Other than that, this blog doesn’t have a lot to do with him, except that some days, when I am just too busy or too tired or have a migraine, I let Dino write my blog for me. On days when he has not taken over the computer, I write about my life – the past, the present and the future - my travels far and near and my home. I would love it if you would follow along.
At the Milwaukee Zoo last
week, we attended the sea lion and seal show. Who knew what little
personalities they have. Just like our devoted dogs, these sea mammals wanted
to please their trainers and show off for strangers.
To me, it is pretty obvious how
to tell the seals from the sea lions, but the trainers shared these
differences. The sea lion has earflaps, while the seal has earholes. Also the
sea lion has long foreflippers, and their hindflippers rotate underneath them
so that they can walk on land. The seal however has short foreflippers with
long claws and hindflippers that stay straight out. They move on land by
I don’t know. I would say
that the sea lion is sleek and mobile, while the seal is – well - blubbery. Are
the experts just trying not to hurt somebody’s feelings?
