harbor seal definition and meaning

What is a "harbor seal"?

The harbor seal, also known as the common seal, is a marine mammal that belongs to the family Phocidae. They are found in coastal regions of the Northern Hemisphere, including the North Atlantic and North Pacific oceans. Harbor seals are known for their sleek and streamlined bodies, with short front flippers and a long, tapering tail. They have a characteristic spotted coat that can range in color from light to dark, and their large, dark eyes are adapted for seeing well both in and out of the water. Harbor seals are known for their playful behavior in the water, often seen swimming, diving, and resting on rocky shores or floating ice. They are opportunistic feeders, primarily preying on fish and invertebrates, and are an important part of marine ecosystems.
