Seals are always on a child's "most liked" animal list at the zoo.
When we lived in St. Louis, the seals were one of the best attractions. They were very accessible and used to the crowds so they would come up very close to the zoo patrons. I have always been enamored by their course white whiskers. Recently, I found out that the whiskers serve a very important function for them. They often hunt for food in murky waters so they can't locate food by sight. Instead they move their whiskers like a radar and they can sense food with them.
Next time you are at the Zoo...be sure to check out the whiskers!
Have a great Saturday,
