Oddo shape changes into an Eastern Atlantic harbour seal  

Length of new-born pup about 80 cm (about 2.5 feet), adult male grows up to 1.8 metres (about 6 feet) – that’s about the size of a human male, colour is grey or brownish grey with black blotches, good swimmer but very clumsy on land, can stay under water up to 10 minutes and dives to about 90 metres (300 feet), keeps close to shore.

Fish, squid, crabs, mussels (crushes shells with back teeth)

An adult Eastern Atlantic blue harbour seal can eat up to 8 kilograms (11-17 pounds) of food per day – that’s the same as eating about 30 hamburgers!
