Fun fact! Weddell seals can dive to depths of 2,000 feet and stay under for up to 45 minutes. They often swim below the Antarctic ice, as this helps them to avoid their main predators, orcas and leopard seals. Like all mammals, they need air to breath so they must surface between dives, and if there are no natural openings in the ice, they use their teeth to create air holes.
