Here is a closeup of his face. Male adult elephant seals have an enlarged nose(hence the name elephant seal) but this one is still so young that it hasnt grown yet. Because they are wild animals and we dont want them to become use to people; a distance of about 5m has to be maintained. This photo and the previous photos were taken with a telephoto lens (as are most of the photos on this site).
