“Abandoned on a beach, this poor seal is the pup that no-one wanted.
His rare gingery-brown fur and sad blue eyes have made him an outcast from the rest of the pack and his own family.
The rare images were taken by photographer Anatoly Strakhov who spotted the sad seal hiding under some logs on Tyuleniy Island, Russia.
The 61 year-old said: ‘He was not playing with other baby seals he just was hiding and waiting for his mother to come and feed him.
‘I spent around half an hour photographing him, I was pleased to be able to capture such an unusual animal.‘But it is a great pity because, the poor seal is almost blind and so was unlikely to survive in the wild.’
Luckily, Anatoly was with staff from a dolphinarium who have now taken the seal into their care.“
Normally I’m not a fan of Gingers (no offense…) but in this case I’d LOVE to be the proud momma of a lil baby ginger seal pup! Those blue eyes, even if they don’t work, are stunning!
Edit: By the way, I’m kidding guys. I dyed my hair red before but it looked absolutely terrible on me. Hence the joke! Calmmm down 🙂
