Marine Lion or Sea Lion is a creature described in On Monsters and Marvels, a book written by a french man, Ambrose Pare, in the 16th century. Just like the name suggested, the creature was described as a marine lion like creature with a fish's tail and covered in scales. It also was reported to have webbed hands and a human-like voice. It has been reported to have been captured in 1540 in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The creature was intended to be shown to the Bishop of Castre but died soon after its capture.
