How to Cuddle with an Elephant Seal

Another seal meets girl story (environmentalism, not a Heidi Klum gossip piece).

Seal meets girl. Seal falls in love with girl. The end. from Bob Dobalina on Vimeo.

This is cute, but just a reminder that coal, petroleum, methane and natural gas emissions are endangering species such as seals through erosion of beaches, ocean acidification, and habitat changes. Please consider helping the endangered Hawaiian monk seals survive.

  1. Best guess: juvenile, female, southern elephant seal.

    Grounds for belief: pictures at Google images + this:

    South Georgia has been a host for six species of seals. Elephant and fur seals are the most common.

    The Antarctic Fur Seal (Arctocephalus gazella) and the Southern Elephant Seal (Mirounga leonina) have large breeding populations at South Georgia, whereas the Weddell Seal (Leptonychotes weddellii) is restricted to a single, small colony.

    Non-breeding Leopard Seals (Hydrurga leptonyx) are recorded year-round, most especially during the winter months and may (rarely) have bred in the area. Crabeater seals (Lobodon carcinophagus) and sub-Antarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus tropicalis) are very occasional visitors.
