A large seal found along the shores in the North Atlantic area. Feeds on fishes near the coast down to a depth of 70m.
Grey Seals are around all year. Our observations of foraging animals happened during August in Saguenay St. Lawrence Marine Park.
Similar in appearance like the Harbour Seal. The distinctive characteristic is the shape of the head. The Grey Seal has a dog snout like nose and mouth, best noticed when seen from the side.
