Description of the image

The image shows a medium-sized semi-aquatic mammal, called  seal, viewed from the profile, oriented towards right side.

The seal has a slightly curved and slightly elongated body, with a short round head, small nose with mustache, two large round eyes, two short upper limbs, and two very close lower limbs.

The body, rendered full in relief, is covered on the inside with a very thick layer of fat, which offers thermal protection.

The mammal is positioned with the abdomen on the ground, resting on the two robust upper fins, located near the body.

Near the seal, on the right, there is a man, as a landmark to determine its true proportions.
