The South American fur seal (Artocephalus australis), breeds on the coasts of Chile, Peru, Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil. It had dark gray coat fur. The males of the species are almost entirely this color, though they may have grey or tan grizzled markings. The females and subadult males have lighter grey or tan coloring on the chest and muzzle, and may have rust-brown or medium grey fur on their undersides. The South American fur seal is found on neotropical ocean coasts from the Paracas peninsula of southern Peru south to cape Horn on the Pacific coast, and northward to southern Brazil on the Atlantic coast. They are also found on the Falkland Islands, and Escondida Island.
