Day 66 – Baby Harbor Seal

Posted in animals by Dave on March 7, 2010

Spring is here. In La Jolla at Children’s Pool Beach there were hundreds of seals this morning. There were lots of mothers and lots of babies. The pups ranged in age between one week and one day. We watched an expecting mother going through labor, even witnessing her water break.  She was hours away from delivering and we wanted to watch but it just started raining too hard. We got soaked waiting for her and eventually gave up.

There was a volunteer group (Friends of Seals) there giving us information as well as keeping people from getting too close to the mothers.

This guy is about a week old.
