Death Of Lobo Del Mar
Reserva Nacional de Paracas, Perú

We found this sea lion carcass on the beach, and my guide estimated that it had been there for several months. On touching the fins and body, I could tell the leathery toughness was going to hold for several more. The vultures got as much as they could but obviously left the rest.
