If you have yet to see an adult elephant seal up close and personal – NOW is your chance! This time of year a large population of elephant seals arrives at the same location annually to give birth to the young, and mate for the season.
The full grown male can grow as large as 2200 lbs. and is a fierce competitor when it comes to claiming his territory on the beach … and his mates. The females are quite a bit smaller and don’t have the large elephant-like nose of which the males are endowed. Witnessing one of these territorial matches between males is truly something to behold.
Stop by in the next few months to see all this up close and personal!
