Weddell Seal: Fat and Happy by Joyce L. Markovics

Antarctica is the coldest place in the world. Temperatures there can drop to as low as -128[degree]F! Very few animals can live in such a harsh climate. One creature that can, however, is the Weddell seal. How does it do it? Since 2001, biologist Terrie Williams has been making trips to Antarctica to find out. Look inside to discover what Terrie has learned about this fascinating and uncommon creature.
