Point Lobos: Harbor Seal Pup Nursing
February 29, 2012 Leave a comment
California harbor seal pups are born every March-June and can swim at birth. They grow up to 6 feet long and weigh up to 300 pounds. A fun fact is that a pup will climb onto its mother’s back for a ride when tired! This harbor seal pup was nursing from its mother on China Cove Beach at Point Lobos State Natural Reserve (near Monterey, California).
