Caption

Northern Elephant Seals (Mirounga angustirostris) feed in conditions under which visibility is drastically reduced, such as at night, at great depths or in murky waters. Their whiskers can help them to detect minute water movements. The high sensitivity of this sensory system allows a seal to gain hydrodynamic information resulting from movements of other aquatic animals, such as prey, predators or conspecifics. San Simeon, Ca.
