Lil’ Fatso

The baby elephant seal is growing at an astounding rate. He has become a fat little sausage of a seal with lots of energy, awareness, and determination. Dad has steamrolled him a few times but he is pretty adept at wiggling out of the way and I have witnessed him take a few snaps at the “Lawn-master”, who has proceeded to back off. Spunky little dude! Mom is going into heat and Mystery getting a bit more aggressive now. I guess I am the closest thing to a rival here. I’ll post some impressive shots of him very soon!
