Elephant Seals

Elephant Seals are the biggest pinnipeds in the world and are huge!

The large males can get up to 15' long and weigh as much as 5,000 lbs. They got there name Elephant seal not just because of their size but because of their crazy looking trunk like nose.If you are down wind of the males "trumpeting" for females and defending their territories you can hear them up to two miles away.

When we see these guys at sea they are often resting with their giant heads poking out in such a way that they earned the name "Old Men of the Sea" . They are very amazing swimmers setting records of deep diving-up to two miles down, long ranges to get to favored feeding grounds, and holding their breath for 2 hours!
