Cape fur seal (Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus) head, close-up. This seal is found along the Namibian coast, as well as the western and southern coasts of South Africa. The animals are so-named as they were killed for their fur. Cape fur seals eat fish, cephalopods, crustaceans and some birds. This seal inhabits coastal regions around southern and south-western Africa, where it forms large colonies. Photographed on the coast of Namibia.
