Southern Elephant Seal pups, South Georgia Island, UK<br />
<br />
Elephant seal pups playfully joust in the calm waters of a shoreline lake. At this age they are called "weaners" because they have recently been weaned from mother's milk. These weaners will grow to be the largest seals on earth--elephant seals weigh as much as several tons and reach up to twenty feet in length.<br />
