The Scars of the Elephant Seal

For my second animal, I chose the bizarrely schnozzed elephant seal, which was once nearly hunted to extinction.  The alpha males in the various colonies get into often bloody fights over the harems of females.  After the thick-skinned horn-nosed rhino, the thickly scarred blubber-nosed elephant seal certainly seemed the way to go...haha.  In any event, the third one will buck the system...sort of.
