During a fortunate opportunity as part of a research team studying population ecology of Weddell seals in the Antarctic, a coworker and myself were able to record this video of one of the seal pups, recently weaned by its mother and on its own to learn how to survive. A pup must first get in the water to be successful as a seal! For more information on the ongoing long-term research, check out the project’s website: http://www.weddellsealscience.com

This little pup does not seem very pleased about having to get into the frigid Antarctic water! Can you really blame him, though?
