Speechless Sunday: Seals at Play at the Carpinteria Seal Rookery

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

A week ago, we took a walk through the Carpinteria Bluffs.  We wanted to check on the seals rookery (nursery).  From December through May new pups will be born.  As of the week of our visit 46 pups were born starting in late December 2019.  

 

In talking to the Fish & Game Wildlife guy on site, we learned that pups are ready to strike on their own at 6 weeks.  He also shared that marine mammals have the richest milk fat content to facilitate their rapid growth at 50%. 

 

Wishing you all a great week ahead.

Abby Stiller what amazes me is that these creatures come back to the same spot, and swim in the same natural lagoon with their brood. They add to the joy of living here for us.  A

Morning Alexandra.

On our last visit we saw them.  So clumsy on land, so graceful in the water.

Michael Jacobs I think that every time I have been there I learned something new and wonderful about these creatures.  One of the volunteers who count the pups, and keeps noisy dogs away, has always has a story up his or her sleeve.  A

Kathy Streib At one point in our beach walks we used to see one fishing.  This seal would catch a fish, raise it overhead, and put it in her/his mouth...then dive again...A
