Elephant Seals In The Macquarie Islands


The information I will be talking about is their diet, their population, their threats, their habitat and their weight.



Elephant seals migrate to Antarctica after they have breed or moulted. Then they feed on squid and fish at the edge of Sea ice.



Their used to be barely any seals at all but now when lots of the sealers have gone they have been able to get their numbers back.



The Elephant seal has no land predators except the white shark and the killer whale is one of their big threats.



Usually Elephant seals live in the sea, mainly on ice but they go on land to breed and have a rest from swimming.



The weight of an average Elephant seal is 4,000 Kilograms for a male and the weight for a female is 600 Kilograms.
