Let’s See Seals! Week 7 Student Blogging Challenge

Seals are one interesting creature.  People can train them, to do funny nice things. I like seals because they are funny, sometimes cute, and they can learn many things but you need to give them time like dogs. And you have to give them treats or reward them somehow like dogs if they do something you want them to do. They have torpedo heads, and they are divided into three different groups called the eared seal, the earless seal, the harbor seal, and elephant seal, and the walrus. The eared seal is called the eared seal because they have ear flaps that open their ear openings.

Earless seals are named that way they don’t have ear flaps but they do have ears. The largest seal is called the elephant seal and by hearing the name I think I can tell why they are called the elephant seal. The male version of a seal can grow up to 16 feet, and weigh up to 8,800 pounds seals go to special area called rookeries. Walruses are pretty different than seals they they are the only type of seal with tusks. But walruses have something in common with earless seals, and eared seals. Like eared seals, walruses have use their hind flippers too get around some areas. And like earless seals, walruses have a little ear opening but zero outside ears.

One other thing that is interesting about seals is what they eat, but some things they eat you may not like they like to feed on some other marine animals. They have sharp pointed teeth not what you would expect from a seal.They cannot chew food because they don’t have any flat teeth to chew it up just sharp. They swallow the whole fish at once that is definitely not what you would expect from a seal.

      Hi Emme thanks for the comment! I have never seen an elephant seal but I have seen a seal before! I just don’t know what type of seal it was maybe it was an elephant seal I don’t know. And if I had a pet seal I would name it Rocky.
