According to the Friends of the Elephant Seal, elephant seals, Mirounga angustirostris, are true seals, or earless seals, members of the pinniped suborder.  The huge blubbery males have pendulous noses that give these beasts their name.  Females possess faces that seem to be etched with a permanent smile, and endearing plump babies are endowed with big brown eyes.

 Come and visit soon.
