 I did a Harp Seal.

  • Harp Seals are Phoca groenlandica, and they are Mammalia. 

  • They live in New founland, Greenland Sea, and White Sea.  
  •   There Biome is Oceanic Biome and the Tiaga.  They are Warm-blooded ( Endothermic).
  • They can live there because of there skin it has little hairs on the body so it can stay warm!!
  • The adult Harp seal is called a Dark Harp. They can get up to 6.25 in length, 6 feet tall (for males), and wiegh about 400 pounds.

           

      

   

  • A Harp Seal's baby is called a pup. They have white fur at birth for warmth. Pups are about 25 lbs when born. There white slikie fur is the reason they are about to be exctinct.

 

  • Harp Seals and Fish are Paratism because the Harp Seal eats the Fish so the Harp Seal is benifiting.
