Caption: Male northern elephant seals (Mirounga angustirostris) fighting. Male seals possess an inflatable proboscis on the head. During the breeding season males fight for territories on the beach, which give them access to females. Dominant males may possess harems numbering up to 40 females by the end of the season. Northern elephant seals are found in the North-East Pacific Ocean. Filmed in California, USA.
