Its body is stocky, and its front flippers are very short, which does not allow it to stand on them. This is why on land or ice, it can only move by crawling and waving its body.
Seals range in length from 1 to 6 m, but the harbor seal, which is the best-known species, is up to 2 m long for males and 1.7 m long for females. Females weigh between 60 and 105 kg while males can reach 170 kg. It can swim at speeds of up to 20km/h.
Seals live both in the water and on land. Apart from the monk seal, which lives in warm seas (Mediterranean, Caribbean), other seals are found in temperate and polar seas.
The seal is a carnivorous mammal and feeds mainly on fish. It also eats crustaceans and cephalopods or mollusks.
Females are sexually mature from the age of 3 years old, while males are sexually mature at around four years old. Courtship and mating are observed in the water in September.
Gestation lasts about 11 months, and births take place in July. The seal gives birth to one pup per year that measures nearly one meter long and weighs 11 kg on average.
The whitecoat pup is raised solely by its mother and is nourished for a maximum of 4 weeks. Harbor seals have a reasonably long life expectancy: 25 years for males and 35 years for females.
