Hawaiian Monk Seal: Two Weeks Old

Posted by: Kim Steutermann Rogers

Our pup is two weeks old here.  It was the first sunny day in a week, so mom and pup decided it was high time to play.  The pair ventured to the water on two occasions, each for almost 1-1/2 hours.  Right now, as mom teaches her offspring about the ways of the water, she doesn’t take pup beyond the surf break, staying well within the outer reef.  Here, the two navigate the rocks.  Pup wasn’t too happy about that, but after a few shouts out to mom, it figured it out.

After the pup’s second swim, near sunset, it was ravenous.  Then, it promptly fell asleep.  Such is the life for beach-goers on Kauai.  Indeed, it sounds like the perfect way to spend Thanksgiving to me.
