Elephant Seal Rookery

This is a video we shot at the Elephant Seal rookery.  The young males are just playing like they are fighting but they are practicing for the day when they will be fighting over the females.  This rookery is now inhabited by juvenile seals.  In one to two months the adult males and females will show up for the mating season.  The adult females will have a baby on the beach.  They will then mate and return in a year to to have another baby.  These seals migrate up to 10,000 miles.
