THE LITTLE HARBOR SEAL PUP SLEEPS LIKE A BABY, because they are. This little pup is about 2 1/2 months old now. He sleeps like a tiny toy and then half-awake starts a huge yawn. He tries to go back to sleep, but the tide is coming in & a cold wave startles him. He takes a look around, yawns again & settles back into seal pup dreamland.
THIS ADULT HARBOR SEAL SURFS UP TO THE BEACH & opens her mouth in a huge yawn. Yup. Time for a nap.
GET A LOAD OF THOSE CHOPPERS ON BOTH THE ADULT & TINY PUP, TOO. Visitors always reach out to touch these seals, which look quite harmless on the beach. They can turn around & bite you as fast as a dog moves to bite you. Not me. I’ve never touched a harbor seal. I admire them from afar. I hope you do, too.
