If you remember from yesterday I told you we were out on Pup Patrol. If you look really close you will see one of the 1100 Hawaiian Monk Seals left on earth. Can you see him??
Let me help you....
I'll let mom zoom in for you.
This little guy is known as 8HY or as we like to call him
8 Hotel Yankee!! We don't know how old he is for sure, but his size indicates that he is probably . 3-4 years of age. He has been hanging out on these rocks since Saturday. Just sleeping all day and then he heads out on adventures or to eat during the evening. He is really green, probably getting ready to molt (he will shed his entry outer fur and skin) then he will be a shinny new gray/silver color.
It's a stressful time for them and they need lots of rest during this process.
Remember SAM ???
Well not only did we have 8HY, but we also found Sam snoozing just
a short distance down the beach. He's looking great.
Enjoying a nice late afternoon snooze.
wow, you can almost count all his whiskers.
Wednesday Seal Update: 8HY was again out on the outer rocks snoozing and unfortunately Sam was no where to be found and believe me, we LOOKED!!! Maybe tomorrow.
Hope you enjoyed Pups on Patrol!!
Love, Gracie and Schatzie
