Caption

Cape fur seal (Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus) flippers. Close-up of the hind flippers of a Cape or South African fur seal. Seals are adapted to life in the sea. They have streamlined bodies and their limbs are modified into flippers to propel them through the water. They are less manouverable when they come onto land to give birth and mate. A. pusillus pusillus feeds primarily on fish and shellfish. It forms large colonies on the coasts of Namibia and South Africa. Photographed on Cape Cross, Namibia.
