Artist's Description

This South African fur seal pup only two weeks old ………..

Adult males are dark gray or brown on the back and lighter on the belly, darkening with age. As with most male fur seals, they have an obvious mane around their neck that becomes lighter in color with age.

Adult females are brownish-gray on the back, light brown on the belly, and paler on the muzzle, lower jaw and face. Pups are black at birth and turn grayish-fawn with a pale throat as they get older.

The South African fur seal is found along the coasts of South Africa and Namibia from Cape Cross, southward to the Cape Peninsula and eastward to Algoa Bay and Black Rocks, Cape Province, South Africa.

Cape fur seals are not migratory but will move within their range. They are found in groups of about 15 animals and may be observed in large groups “rafting” close to rookeries.

THREATS TO THE SPECIES MAN !!

Like all fur seals, the Cape fur seal was heavily exploited for its luxurious pelt man is there worst enemy ! ……………………………. )-:
