Caption

Northern fur seal. View of a young northern fur seal (Callorhinus ursinus) at the edge of a breeding ground. This is the most common of all the fur seals and is found in the northern Pacific Ocean. The northern fur seal spends most of the year at sea where it mainly feeds on fish. The younger bulls are not strong enough to establish territories and will stay at the edge of the breeding ground during the mating season. Due to this their fur is unscathed by territorial fights. This makes them prime targets for fur hunters. Photographed in the Pribilof Islands, Alaska, USA.
