In Hebrew: ‘Sea Lion’

Your daily dose of Hebrew.
Sea Lion

כֶּלֶב יָם If you’re up for a challenge and you like to read about animals, check out this Ynet article about Israeli wildlife photography. Warning – some pictures are not suitable for vegetarians.

The first animal depicted in the article is a leopard seal, the second-largest seal found around Antarctica.

A seal or sea lion in Hebrew is a כֶּלֶב יָם– literally, a dog of the sea.

A leopard seal is a כֶּלֶב יָם נְמֵרִי – literally, a leopard-like dog of the sea. (A נָמֵרis technically a leopard in Hebrew, but most Israelis use the term to refer to a tiger.)

For example:

בַּשַּׁיִט בְּאַנְטַרְקְטִיקָה הִיא רָאֲתָה כֶּלֶב יָם נְמֵרִי.
On the cruise in Antarctica, she saw a leopard seal.
