BIRTH OF A HARBOR SEAL PUP – LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA – March 3, 2014 “Silver Moon” was born & the Harbor seal mom smiled & smiled. The sea gulls came to take the mom’s afterbirth & sprinkled the sky like white confetti thrown to celebrate the birth. The little pup had a coating of lanugo fur, which made him look silver. This fur will soon fall off & he will likely look like the black cap on his head. “Silver Moon” was one of 32 pups on the beach born in the last few weeks. It is a pup-a-thon!
