A Southern Elephant Seal by foodONE A Southern Elephant Seal by foodONE
The Southern Elephant Seal (Mirounga leonina) is one of two species of elephant seal. It is not only the most massive pinniped but also the largest member of the order Carnivora to have ever lived. The seal gets its name from its great size and the large proboscis of the adult males, which is used in making extraordinarily loud roaring noises, especially during the mating season.


still looking for a name :C

Awesome - I really like it! The lines, the color, the expression on his face - everything. XD

Elephant seals are pretty fascinating, particularly because they're so much bigger than any other seal. O__o

Haha, no collab, unless you want one. ;D I'm pretty busy myself.

Plus, my elephant seal doesn't do anything except go "HHHNNRGGHHH."
