Harbor Seal Phoca vitulina

Harbor Seal Phoca vitulina

Mammalia > Carnivora > Phocidae

Widely distributed along the coasts of North America. This species is brown, silvery white or grey with distinctive V-shaped nostril. Eats mostly fish along the cost and upstream in large rivers.

The V-shape nostril is the clear distinctive feature of this species.

The only time I was able to watch this species was in May in Tadoussac from a boat. They were resting on the rocky shore of Saguenay River.
