Common Seals

Click Me
Location: Skomer Island Date: 14/06/2014
Scientific Name: Phoca vitulina Pic By: Mark
Family: Seal Size: 140cm
ISO: 400 Gender: U
Equipment: Canon EOS 7D 400/1
Description: The smaller of our two seal species, Common Seals (also known as Harbour Seals) are more commonly found around sheltered shores and estuaries, where they haul out on sandbanks and beaches. When out of the water, they sometimes hold their body in a curved 'banana' position, with their head and tail both in the air at the same time. Like Grey Seals, they feed on fish, but also eat squids, whelks, crabs and mussels. The young are born during the summer. Can be distinguished from the Grey Seal by its smaller size and shorter head with a blunter, more dog-like profile. Very variable in colour, from blonde to black, but generally grey with dark spots.
