Can Elephant be a Seal?

31 May — 2021

Of course! If this elephant is an Elephant seals! These seals owe their name to the trunk-like nose of the males and their large size. Recently, Evgeny Mamaev, Deputy Director for Science of the CINBR, reminded us of theelephant seal  arrival on the Commander Islands, according to him: "It was a long time ago. Once a Northern Elephant Seal from Oregon came to the Medny Island, and lived there for several years. He was trusting, unlike seals and sea lions, and allowed us to take photos of him. And he became the first sea elephant reliably registered in the fauna of Russia.”
