Moulting Elephant Seal video

The video of this female elephant was taken off the South side of Race Rocks. It was done iby Alex Fletcher in hi 8 – before we had SONY cameras that would record in Digital. One can see the patchy skin typical of the moulting stage just behind the head. This seal had probably already gone through the most serious part of the juvenile moult, which may have occurred on one of the sandy beaches over near Metchosin.
