I went to Alki beach again this morning to look for the River Otters.....no luck. A Harbor Seal pup that has been weened arrived and hauled-out at Duwamish Head. This is a healthy looking pup likely a couple of months old. The lines on the side of the pup are called blubber rolls or lines. There was not much beach and a rising tide so after fighting the wave action for about 1/2 hour the pup went back in the water....sort of picked the wrong time and the wrong beach to take a nap. These pups need lots of rest time....at least 50% of their time is spent out of the water to rest and conserve heat.
