Caption

South African fur seals (Arctocephalus pusillus) on a rocky coast. These fur seals spend most of the year at sea, coming to shore only during the breeding season. When they come ashore, the colonies can have thousands of members. Males (bulls) compete for space, and females generally choose the males with the best territory. These seals feed mainly on fish, although they also take squid, crabs and occasionally birds. Bulls can reach a length of almost 2.5 metres, although females are generally less than 2 metres in length. Photographed on Dyer Island, South Africa.
