Harbor Seal by Chuck Meadows
Much like human fingerprints, the harbor seal's pelage - or short, thick hair - is unique to the individual and ranges from silver to beige to black. Because it provides no insulation, it molts each year after breeding season. Layers of blubber instead keep the seal warm, adjusting the skin to the approximate water temperature while maintaining a core temperature of about 100° F.
