You do not need to journey to our oceans' coasts to experience the beauty of the Harbor Seal. This adorable puppet has such a heartwarming, soulful face it is hard to put down. Big, black eyes; soft whiskers, and silky fabric fur make the puppet a sure-to-be favorite. Movable mouth and front flippers. Measures 19? long x 7? wide x 8? high. (Folkmanis 2537)

FACTS OF INTEREST: The four species of harbor seal live north of the equator, two on the shores of the Pacific Ocean and two on the shores of the Atlantic. Harbor seals are graceful, fast swimmers. When they "haul out" on land though, they can only move by flopping around on their bellies. Seals often rest on land with their heads and back flippers raised. This is called the "banana" position. Harbor seals usually hunt fish near the surface, but they are able to dive down 1,500 feet under the water and hold their breath for 30 minutes.
