FACTS OF INTEREST:
- The four species of harbor seal live north of the equator, two on the shores of the Pacific Ocean and two on the shores of the Atlantic.
- Harbor seals are graceful, fast swimmers. When they "haul out" on land though, they can only move by flopping around on their bellies.
- Harbor seals often rest on land with their heads and back flippers raised. This is called the "banana" position.
- Harbor seals usually hunt fish near the surface, but they are able to dive down 1,500 feet under the water and hold their breath for 30 minutes.
