That is one wild creature.

Sea lions are marine mammals, with males growing up to 8 to 10 feet in length and weighing between 600 to 1,000 pounds. Females are slightly smaller, averaging 6 to 7 feet  length and weighing around 200 to 400 pounds.

Sturgeon are ancient fish species known for their elongated bodies, ranging in size from a few feet to over 20 feet long and weighing hundreds of pounds.

Sea lions are opportunistic predators with a varied diet. They primarily feed on fish such as herring, anchovies, salmon, and squid. Their streamlined bodies and powerful flippers make them adept swimmers and agile hunters, allowing them to navigate through the water and capture their prey with precision. They are capable of diving to impressive depths, enabling them to chase down fish in their underwater domain.

Sturgeon are primarily bottom-feeders, inhabiting rivers and coastal areas.

While it is not typical for sea lions to target sturgeon as their primary prey, occasional encounters between the two species have been observed. Sea lions may opportunistically feed on sturgeon, particularly when other preferred food sources are scarce or during times of migration.

This sea lion was being tracked and observed when it dove to a depth of 100 feet in Oregon. The sea lion came back up with a big ol’ sturgeon.

The video shows the lion coming to the surface and just thrashing the fish around showing it who’s boss.

What a wild creature.
