  Sea Elephants
by Maggies

Sea Elephants are the largest seals in the world. Males have 4-6 meters and weight up to 4000 kilos, they are also easily distinguished by their large trunk-like nose, which is about 40 cm long. They have 40-females harems. When they are in the beach, they don't eat anything, so they spend a lot fo energy every time they move.
Females feed the pups for about a month - not eating anything at this time.
