Harbor Seal

Phoca vitulina

Description:

This brown seal was relaxing and cleaning itself on some sandstone. It had amazing luck as a Garibaldi was stuck in a recess in the sandstone during low tide as seen in the 4th image. It' an easy lunch if it wants it.

Habitat:

La Jolla on a sandstone jetty.
