The Sea lions are trained to blow their nose on cue in order to check their breathing (nose and throat)

Blowing their nose on demand allows the trainers to collect a sample and send it to a lab for analysis.  The lab can then use the sample to check their breathing or their lungs for any problems in that part of their body.

The approximate speed a Sea Lion can swim is 13 mph

Sea lions gain speed by porpoising, gliding on the water’s surface to minimize resistance. Surfing in front of waves or large whales seems to be a fun activity for sea lions. Sea lions have often been called the “Angels of the Sea” due to the unique way that they swim. Sea lions use their hind flippers to steer and swim using their front flippers.
