Caption: Ross seal (Ommatophoca rossii). This rare seal inhabits the Antarctic, mainly the region around the Ross sea. It is generally solitary, and the population is dispersed and relatively unstudied. It feeds primarily on squid, although it does also take fish and krill (shrimp). The female is larger than the male, and may reach a length of up to 2.5 metres. Photographed on the Petersen Bank, Antarctica.
