Winter at Seal Rocks

Seal pups are weaning off from their mother’s milk and learning to fish for themselves. A seal’s main diet includes small fish such as pilchards and leatherjackets, as well cephalopods (squid, octopus, and cuttlefish).

Foraging areas vary greatly between juveniles, cows and bulls, with some bulls going as far as the edge of the continental shelf in search of their prey.

Cows and juveniles tend to forage closer to their colony, regularly seen travelling individually or small pods near the Phillip Island coast.
