Secret Seal Lair

15

The Ringed seal (Pusa hispida) is a secretive animal; unlike other seals they carve out a lair in snowdrifts or ridges of ice to conceal themselves from predators. Special features of this hideout include one or more chambers and a hole in the ice to allow them to dive down into the water for food.
