Although seals and sea lions are known for their antics at marine parks, A Colony of Seals shows that these animals are even more fascinating and lovable in their natural habitat. Known as pinnipeds, these irresistible creatures are portrayed in 40 color photographs, most taken by world-famous naturalist Frank Balthis. These images cover a wide range of behavior among these social animals — everything from playful pups to nurturing mothers to raging males. Included is a worldwide survey of pinnipeds, with special sections devoted to harbor seals, sea lions, and the ever-intriguing elephant seals. A Colony of Seals reveals the wild life of one of nature's cutest, most beloved animals.
