The Grey Seal is a beautiful marine mammal that can be found in the cold waters of the Northern Hemisphere. They are closely related to the Harp Seal and Hooded Seal.
Grey Seals have a thick, grey fur coat which helps them to stay warm in the cold water. They are also equipped with a layer of blubber, which is a type of fat, to keep them insulated.
Grey Seals use their whiskers to help them navigate in the water. They can also dive down to depths of up to 660 feet!
These animals are herbivores and eat mainly fish, but they will also consume crustaceans and mollusks.
Grey Seals breed between September and November. The female seals give birth to a single pup after a gestation period of around 11 months.
The pups are nursed by their mothers for around four weeks, after which they are able to start feeding themselves.
