Seal

From Openwaterpedia
A seal in San Francisco Bay

noun - Seals, or earless seals, are pinnipeds, one of the three main groups of mammals within the seal superfamily, Pinnipedia. All true seals are sometimes called crawling seals to distinguish them from the fur seals and sea lions of the family Otariidae. Seals live in the oceans of both hemispheres and are mostly confined to polar, subpolar, and temperate climates, with the exception of the more tropical monk seals.
