Harbour Seals, Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, British Columbia, Canada CM11-04

Description : Harbour seals belong to a group of animals called Pinnipeds, which includes seals and sea lions. Seals differ from sea lions in that they have no external ear flaps, they have short, fur-covered front flippers, and they can’t raise their head and shoulders well while on land. They move quite awkwardly on land, by undulating their body, “inch-worm” style.Sea lions, on the other hand, have external ear flaps, longer furless front flippers, and rear flippers that can be rotated forward.
