Fur Seal

I saw the fur seal in South Africa's Cape Cross a few years ago. What I remember most is the sound and the smell. The air was full of squeals. When I looked over the wall I was overwhelmed with the number of seals on the beach.

Seals filling the beach, the waterside and the water. The numbers are amazing. It was as if every spare space was coevered.

Seal, with pup. The mother carries the pup in the mouth and then drops it in the sand. The pup seems no worse for wear.
