Pinnipeds eye temperature stabilisation and cetaceans blowhole temperature along time. Pinnipeds eye temperature for 18 min after leaving the water of one individual of each different species under study [Patagonian sea lion (Otaria flavescens), harbour seal (Phoca vitulina), Pacific walrus (Odobenus rosmarus divergens)]. Cetaceans blowhole temperature during voluntary breathings measured perpendicularly to the longitudinal axis of one individual of each evaluated specie [Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), beluga whale (Delphinapterus leucas)]
