We often get the question why are seals so lazy? Every time when we see them they are resting, hauled out on ice. They don’t seem to do a lot.
However, that might just be our perception. Finding seals on ice is a lot easier as finding seals in the water (or even worse: under water). They will spent a lot of time in the water hunting for food, but when they do so, they are out of sight for us. Only appearing again, right, when they take another rest on the ice.
