Ross seal

This sweet little guy was a  l-o-n-g way from his usual home, deep in the pack ice of Antarctica.  Most of our naturalists had never seen a Ross seal (an article I found on the net claims that until the 1970s fewer than 100 people had ever seen one!).  Apparently his ice floe went for a sail and he came along.
