Since my schedule is more open recently (got laid off 2 weeks ago)
I decided to go for a drive up the coast today. Well technically I
left yesterday.
(was gonna ask a girl to go with me but I'm a wuss and that's another story)
Not exactly the most cuddly creatures but certainly
a great way to spend some time.

This time of year the Elephant Seal Bulls watch over their harems and
fight each other for dominance and the ability to mate with the females.
A full size male looks like a freight train crossing the sand when charging
another male, often crushing new pups in the process.
Not too much action today, mostly sunning themselves on the sandy beach.
The little fat ones are called weeners because they have been weened yet
aren't necessarily ready to brave the ocean for migration.
The bigger fat ones are sub adult males (bulls) practicing for their chance to
mate with the females.
The scarred male is an adult and the scars are from battles with other bulls
and are caused by their teeth.

lol I think she's totally cuddly......:blush2:


I guess the seals would keep you warm at night, at least until they roll over on you
or tried to impregnate you.:D


Thanks for the compliments everybody. I haven't picked up a camera in a couple years, it was something that I loved but life got in the way.
