ELEPHANT SEAL MOULTING SEASON
Yearling elephant seal on the Clallam Bay Beach. Gender unknown.
They were hunted down to about 100 individuals, according to the Marine Mammal Stranding System station in Joyce. They're in recovery, but they're very inbred.
So I waited until it slid back down off the beach this morning before posting this. First elephant seal I've ever seen in the wild.
