How to distinguish seals from a sea lion?

Just watching me carefully! The trunks of both are streamlined, adapted to life in water: their paws replace the fins. However, the difference lies in the fact that the sea lion has small ears, and seals - only the ear holes. Sea lions move dry, tucking their hind legs under the torso, and seals dragging them on the ground. Sea lions float with the help of the front flaps, and the seals in this process involve the hind legs and the back of the trunk.
