[Weekly] Seal Snippets! - Fun Facts About Seals

Did you know...?

Seals can hunt in complete darkness or while completely blind!

Seals do not need to be able to see to hunt fish. They use their vibrissae (their whiskers) to sense the tiny vibrations in the water that fish make as they swim. Completely blind, but otherwise perfectly healthy seals have been recorded in the wild. Hurray for whiskers!
