Sea lions and fur seals, the Otariidae, are adapted to avoid heat loss while foraging in cold water. The body surface is insulated with a thick layer of fat and, in the fur seals, by dense pelage. Heat loss may also be reduced by shunting of blood from the periphery and by counter-current heat exchange (TARASOFF & FISHER, 1970). These morphological features that serve heat conservation at sea pose problems for the animals during reproduction on land. During hot weather, the animals must augment…

Thermoregulatory behavior of eared seals.
TLDR
Thermoregulatory behavior was studied in the Steller sea lion and in the South Australian fur seal during their respective reproductive seasons, finding that both species resorted to the water for cooling and the behavior of sea lion pups showed less of a direct correlation with temperatures than for their mothers.
Thermoregulatory Behavior of the Northern Elephant Seal, Mirounga angustirostris
Observations on a colony of northern elephant seals on Guadalupe Island, Mexico, revealed that group patterns of sand flipping and migration to the surf were correlated with weather conditions. These
Body Temperature in the Northern Fur Seal, Callorhinus ursinus
TLDR
Body temperatures of fur seals are of interest not only because of the large samples available butBecause of the species' size, its high degree of specialization for an aquatic mode of life, and the fact that it lives in an environment where heat stress is nonexistent.
Thermoregulatory Behavior of the Hawaiian Monk Seal (Monachus schauinslandi)
TLDR
The behavior of Hawaiian monk seals at French Frigate Shoals was studied in order to obtain information on their adaptation to a tropical climate and it is unlikely that monk seals have any difficulty in dissipating metabolic heat when they are in the water.
Northern fur seal thermoregulation: Thermal responses to forced activity on land
Abstract 1. 1.|Temperatures from 11 different sites representing core, trunk periphery, and hindflippers were measured in 86 harvested northern fur seals after they had been forcibly driven overland
Regulation of Temperature in Fur Seals
TLDR
A APOPULATION of about 1,800,000 fur seals assemble in summer on shores of the Pribilof Islands to breed, and in autumn cools below freezing as the seals depart.
Temperature Regulation in the California Sea Lion (Zalophus californianus)
TLDR
The experiments reported in this paper were designed to investigate the possibility that California Sea Lions are physiologically equipped to deal with a hot environment, as some other species of pinnipeds appear to be.
Diurnal Rhythm of Body Temperature in the Hawaiian Monk Seal (Monachus schauinslandi)
The diurnal variation of body temperature of an unrestrained Hawaiian monk seal, recorded by telemetry, was 1.0° C. Increased activity was the principal cause of increased body temperature in the

Behavioral thermoregulation in the California sea lion, Zalophus californianus , was studied during the summers of 1970 and 1971 on San Nicolas and San Miguel Islands, California. Zalophus has a
First observations on colony structure, behavior, and vocal repertoire of the South American Für Seal (Arctocephalus australis Zimmermann, 1783) in Peru
TLDR
It appears to be the rule that females nurse yearlings, leading in some cases to competition between yearling and its newborn sibling, and corroborates the previously suggested intermediate position of A. pusillus between für seals and sea lions.
