A seal is a mammal. They are gray or white and have whiskers. They have a snout and have blubber on their bellies. The average seal weighs 57 pounds and is 10 feet long. Seals are one of the best swimmers in the world because of their flippers. Their flippers help them move through the water quickly by moving them back and forth. Seals care for their young by giving them milk.
A seal mates by gathering in large numbers on rocks. A female seal produces 1 pup a year. They do it by rocky shores or islands.
Seals are predators .But they have a predator, whales, polar bears, sharks, humans. Seals eat squid, fish, penguins ,lobsters ,octopus ,and some of them eat other seals. Seals will also use flight as a defense not fight.
Most seals live in the Artics and survive in the harsh and bitter cold weather. Most of a seal’s life is in the water, but come out on land to bask in the sun. They like islands with rocky shores so they can bask in the sun
and be close to their source of food. Seals do migrate. They migrate because of the climate even though they can survive in harsh weather.
