"Peering Harbor Seal"

A young harbor seal pokes its head above the sea foam to watch its companions.

Fort Bragg, California

 
Seal Facts:

Harbor seals have no external ears and their eyes are prominent. Their hind flippers do not bend forward to support their bodies when they are out of water.

A newborn seal is covered with a coat of soft white or yellowish-white wool which is shed at the age of one or two weeks.
