Seal Reproduction


Male seals are called bulls, while female seals are called cows. A pregnant female spends a long period of time foraging at sea, to build up her fat reserves. Seals have an extremely thick, fat-rich milk to feed their pups. Male Elephant Seals gather groups of females during the breeding season. The gestation period for the Northern Elephant Seal lasts about 11 months.
