Visitor in Burnt Islands
On March 20th, this seal was seen soaking up the sun on a beautiful Sunday morning
on the floating docks in Burnt Islands.
It was an attraction for many citizens, as kids enjoyed admiring this furry mammal.
Did you know seals are aptly suited to their watery environment.
With streamlined bodies, eyes that see well underwater, ear passages and nostrils that clamp shut while underwater,
and insulating blubber, they are the acrobats of the sea.
