Footage of elephant seal pups nursing, and more
by Alison Hawkes on January 08, 2013
As a follow up to our recent story on the debauchery of the elephant seal breeding at Ano Nuevo State Reserve, we figure you can never get too much on elephant seals at this time of year, can you?
The first crop of pups have been born and are now busy growing and gaining weight as they nurse from their mothers — a good sign that the world is as it should be for these blubbery beasts.
Nature photographer David Cruz sent in these amazing pics and a video of nursing pups from his recent trip out to the reserve.
