Hooded Seal (Cystophora cristata)

Set of scaled elevation drawings of the Hooded Seal viewed from the side and top

Hooded seals primarily prefer the floating ice packs. They are also called bladder-nosed seals and inhabit icy waters of the north pole. These large sexually dimorphic Phacid can be silver-grey or white and sometimes have black spots covering their body. Adult males show a strikingly inflatable nasal cavity besides their well-known hood in their nose and are usually larger than females. The animals also migrate, love to forage in deep waters with the competence to dive deeper compared to other seals. Additionally, Hooded seals live solitary, are unsocial, extremely aggressive, and territorial.

Hooded Seals have a total length between 5.91’-10’ (1.8-3 m), body height of 15”-29.1” (38-74 cm), and width of 13”-38.6” (33-98 cm). The typical weight of the Hooded Seal is in the range of 440-880 lb (200-400 kg). Hooded Seals have lifespans between 25-35 years. The sizes of Hooded Seals differ greatly between genders.

Pinnipeds, also commonly known as seals, are large furry fin or flipper footed carnivorous semi-aquatic marine mammals. While pinnipeds live primarily in the ocean, they can come on land for long periods of time. Millions of years ago, pinnipeds were land-dwelling creatures.
