If you’re ever in snowy Arctic Russia or Canada, be sure to walk carefully-you might mistake a newborn harp seal for a pile of snow! At about two weeks old, the pup sheds its furry white coat for one that’s grey and smooth, perfect for skimming through the ocean to hunt for small fish.When hunting, harp seals can hold their breath for up to 20 minutes while they dive to depths of 800 feet or more. That’s almost as deep as the Eiffel Tower is tall.
