2-DAY OLD HARBOR SEAL PUP

iT’S PUPPING SEASON!  From now until May 15th, there will be little harbor seal water sprite pups swimming, nursing and touching noses with moms.  Visitors will get to observe the miracle of these pups being born on the beach.  This darling pup was named Gidget and was one of the first pups born this season.  In these photos Gidget is 3 days old and already swims like a little seal mermaid.  If you look close at one of the photos, you will see her umbilical cord still attached because she is such a new born.  Mom was sleeping in the water for awhile.  It seems even seal mothers get tired from trying to keep up with energetic babies!
