Caption: Cape fur seal (Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus) grooming itself. The seal's hind limbs are modified into flippers for swimming, but can also be used for grooming (as seen here). The Cape, or South African, fur seal feeds primarily on fish and shellfish. It forms large colonies on the coasts of Namibia and South Africa. Males hold large territories containing several females and their pups. Photographed on Cape Cross, Namibia.
