Family: Phocidae

Earless seals. These marine mammals are ungainly on land but quick and agile in the water. Their front flippers are short, and their hind limbs extend straight back. They use their hind limbs only when swimming, and move on land by taking short hops. They have large eyes and nose, but no external ears. They feed on fish, shell fish, squid and octopus. They are most often seen when sunning on land. -- Text by: Georgia Department of Natural Resources
