More Information

Pinnipeds (commonly known as seals) are carnivorous, semi-aquatic marine mammals. There are more than 50 extinct species of seals found from different fossils. Over time, their senses have developed to adapt to water and land living. Some examples are their eyesight, hearing, whiskers, and their fat layers/fur to keep warm in cold water.
