... the extent to which blood and muscle oxygen stores varied as a function of age, body size and sex in the sexually dimorphic California sea lion, Zalophus californianus . We measured total body oxygen stores, including hematocrit, hemoglobin, MCHC, plasma volume, blood volume and muscle myoglobin in pups...

...Frank E. Fish; Jenifer Hurley; Daniel P. Costa SUMMARY Maneuverability is critical to the performance of fast-swimming marine mammals that use rapid turns to catch prey. Overhead video recordings were analyzed for two sea lions ( Zalophus californianus ) turning in the horizontal plane. Unpowered...

...Jenifer A. Hurley; Daniel P. Costa SUMMARY The metabolic rate (MR) of four adult California sea lions ( Zalophus californianus ), two males and two females, was quantified during trained submersion and stationing behavior in laboratory tanks. MR was measured, at rest and for single submersions...
