Newborn Grey Seal Pup by nitsch Newborn Grey Seal Pup by nitsch
This pup can only have been a few days old at most. It still has it's umbilical cord attached if you look carefully. Taken at Donna Nook, UK.

Enjoy! :-)

Grey Seal - Halichoerus grypus, meaning "hooked-nosed sea pig"

The bulls reach 2.5–3.3m long and weigh up to 300kg; the cows are much smaller, typically 1.6–2.0m long and 100–150kg in weight.

Aww I just saw such a little one in my zoo, I shot it when some kind of crow or other ugly bird peeked it. Luckily the big mummy came to the pup and save it. :)

Beautiful shot! Love the softer lighting; it really complements the seal's coloring and recent arrival. :) The focus is great as well as always!

Baby seals have to be protected! I am against my Country's policy!

I agree. Sadly, even in this country where they have some protection, some fishermen flout the law and will kill them.

Yes, it is sad! And just think of the Japanese who still kill whales! Awful!

It's well worth a visit Cy. Bear in mind that the main beach where all the best action happens is closed on weekdays as it is MOD/RAF land, I've heard of some folk heading over there during the week only to be very dissapointed.

Thanks for letting me know that Nick, I try to go to most places during the week as it is generally quieter.
