    My first thought was "Oh look a brown bear!" 😃

    oh it does look like a bear - weird! That's another one for my 'other animals' collection. #dailyzoo ?

    On zooming in it's mostly a rock, but with a P making the front "head and paws".

    what do you think? I just still looks like a seal walking to me... wish it was closer

    I agree even zooming in on that view it still looks like a walking seal. I have since classified the same scene but there were Ps in the way

    Hi banthesun! I was very excited to see a seal in action! It never struck me that they might look so bear-like.

    There sure have been more seal spottings in this bunch of pictures. Perhaps it would be worth adding them as an option for the other menu?

    We had a long debate on this fact a while back. But there were a lot less seals then. I'm sure the scientists will be keeping an eye on

    what's coming in & will decide to change the 'other' list if need be. Feel welcome to pop a question on the science board if you'd like 😃
