Autumn at Seal Rocks

Seal pups are spending a lot of time swimming, diving and practicing prey-chasing, although still staying in groups for safety.

As the pups explore their environment they can be seen to ‘play’ with seaweed, learning to use their teeth to catch and tear prey. The pups’ curiosity to boats is evident as they confidently approach in large pods within meters of the boat!

Cows stay away for longer in search of food, often leaving their pups on the rocks for up to 10 days. Moulting begins, and while seals can still go to sea and feed during their moult, but they spend a lot of time resting ashore, grunting and scratching.

Pups have their first moult too, changing their distinctive black fur for a brown-silver coat.
