Harbor Seal

Phoca vitulina


Young female Harbor Seal I have observed since she was a pup in 1993. I can identify them by the spot patterns on their bellies or by scars etc. She is now an adult and has had two pups in the years I have known her.


Northern Atlantic, Coastal. They use tidal rocks or beaches to rest (haul out) and pup but will go 20 or more miles off shore to feed.

No species ID suggestions
