Ooooo! A monk seal?

Just B said...

Great pictures, but better still was the comment from (not-so)anonymous, "mom did I tell you..." Loved it!

Oh how lucky you were to get to see him/her napping. Lovely.

Kristan said...

PHEW omg I thought this was going to be the saddest Wordless Wed ever! But then it turns out to just be cute. :)

I'm no biologist, but I do believe it is a Hawaiian monk seal. When they beach themselves like that they totally knock out and sleep for hours. Usually the north shore lifeguards will come along and put orange cones and, no shit, construction yellow tape around them, but this was early, about 7 am, that I was walking on the beach.

Glad that he was just sleeping! Lucky you with those walks on the beach to see things like this. Green with envy.

I thought he's dead and good thing he's not.

Hope you can visit mine.

Laura said...

The dreams of an Hawaiian monk seal. I wonder if they include blog fame?

Smart Mouth Broad said...

I learn so much here. I can't believe they just beach themselves and then sleep. Too funny. And a little scary bc I really thought....uh...
Thanks for sharing these great photos.

didn't you think it was a log until you got right up to it? (wish i was there.)

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Yes, I thought it was a log, then when I realized it was a seal I started shooting pictures. That last shot I was pretty close, but then zoomed in some too.

Deconstructing Jen said...

What amazing pictures! How fabulous to live in a place where you might just happen across that!

Mama Dawg said...

Whew...glad he was sleeping.

Rhea said...

That is one huge seal. Wow. Impressive. And I'm so relieved. I would have burst into tears if you'd told me he was dead. Whew.
