This harbor seal could not decide if he would rather pose for my camera or watch his reflection in the water. I suspect he was vain because most of the time was spent staring at his mirrored face and snorting through his V-shaped nostrils. There are about five to six million seals living in the Northern Hemisphere’s Arctic coastlines. This is probably why they are called the common seal. This one lives at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington.
