The seal and the peacock by woxys The seal and the peacock by woxys
Baby male harbor / common seal Flint (Phoca vitulina, tulen obecny) from ZOO Duisburg, Germany. Extremelly cute pup! :aww:

For ~Kajula :hug:

Story of the photo: this baby male was separated from other seals, because he had to learn to eat fish instead of drinking mother milk. Pup was very curious and when *Lunchi's friend shown peacock's feather to him, Flint seemed interested in it :D

Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:

Interesting facts: Harbor seal is the most common species of pinnipeds | females live longer than males (35 vs 25 years) | seals sleep in the water, breathing every few minutes | baby of the seal is called the pup | mother milk of the seals is extremelly fatty | they can spend 10 minutes underwater and when diving, they can reach the depth of 450 metres | in ZOOs, seals sometime die due eating coins and other things, which were thrown to their pool by stupid visitors

I like the parallels between the seal's whiskers and the tines of the peacock feather.

Feather and milk... look very different! Do seals distinguish colours?

I also don't know. I've heard that only monkeys have multi-colour vision.

I meant mammals. And I studied biology so long ago, so my knowledge is poor already. I forgot so many things...
