|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Southern Elephant Seal (Mirounga leonina) is one of two species of elephant seal. It is not only the most massive pinniped but the largest member of the order Carnivora as well. The seal gets its name from its great size and the large proboscis of the adult males, which is used in making extraordinarily loud roaring noises, especially during the mating season.|
This photo is taken in Robert Island, in Antarctica. Original format.

Good details of this elephant seal, and very simpatico face. Good colours and light.
All best regards. Cezar T.
