New Zealand Fur Seal Bull on Coast
Photographer: Sebastian Kennerknecht
Location: Kaikoura, South Island, New Zealand
Story: 
One might expect to find this New Zealand Fur Seal (Arctocephalus forsteri) bull on the distant coastal rocks seen in the background of the photograph, but he chose instead to rest on these soft grasses. Though he may look a bit out of place here, he was in fact one of many fur seals who hauled out on this part of the Kaikoura coast on the South Island of New Zealand.
