the open ocean during the non-breeding season (where they can dive to remarkable depths)
- during the breeding season, it is generally found on beaches and rocky terrain, and sometimes on ice and snow
- they can swim in the ocean & move fast on land
- secondary/tertiary/quadinairy consumer
have twice the blood volume , three times as much hemoglobin, and much more myoglobin than land mammals of the same size & they are good swimmers, but are capable of moving fast on land
a thick layer of blubber between their skin and their vital organs to help keep them warm at sea (the flippers and the "armpits" of the front flippers)
- average depth of their dives is about 300 to 600 m (980 to 1,970 ft) & can stay underwater for up to 2 hours
Why did I chose the Elephant Seal to win the competition?
they’re usually pretty big
they have some good adaptations
they are also pretty rare
I like elephants and seals, so I also like them combined!
- I like the way they look!
