Harbour Seal

This little fellow popped up right in front of me. They are very curious creatures.
They are also called the Common seal and have the greatest range of all seals. They can grow up to 1.85 meters(6.1′) at 132 Kgs (290 lbs). The females live much longer than the males. The females range from 30-35 years ,while the males are 20-25 years. It’s estimated that there are between 400,000 to 500,000 world wide and the population is considered healthy in size.
