Name: Halichoerus grypus
Habitat: Water around rocky cliffs in the north Atlantic Ocean
Facts: Grey seals bear their young around rocky coasts. The pup is born with long, wooly, white-grey fur. This coat is shed and replaced with darker, shorter heair when they are four to five weeks old. At this time, they are weaned and must search for their own food.
Grey seals have long claws on their front flippers which are used to catch and hold fish.
