Caption: Antarctic fur seal pup (Arctocephalus gazella) on a beach. It has recently shed its dark juvenile fur and developed its silver-grey adult coat. The Antarctic fur seal feeds mainly on krill, but it also eats squid and fish. It is primarily a nocturnal hunter. An adult male can reach a length of up to two metres and a weight of over 200 kilograms. Photographed at the Bird Island Research Station, South Georgia Islands. Around 95% of the Antarctic fur seal population breed on South Georgia.
