Caption: A bearded seal (Erignathus barbatus) resting on an ice floe. Bearded seals feed on a variety of small prey found along the ocean floor, including clams, squid, and fish. Their whiskers serve as feelers in the soft bottom sediments. Adults tend not to dive very deep, favouring shallow coastal areas no more than 300m deep.
