Slash, a year and a half after recovery

Slash, the elephant seal was struck by a motor boat at Race Rocks in January of 2003. Fortunately he has recovered well in the past year and a half as can be seen here in two videos taken by Mike Slater in July and August of 2004.

There is also a second video showing Slash undergoing a moult in August of 2004.
