The boys at Deep Sea News are wrapping up their Megavertebrate Week in which they profile various charismatic animals with backbones that live in the sea (including seals). Go check out their site for other cool pictures and stories about swimming with sharks. For those of you who like spotting critters in the field, Jeremy at the Voltage Gate has the thing for you: the first ever Blogger Bioblitz. If you enjoy identifying organisms in the wild, sign up, observe, and report back what you see. And, if you live by the ocean, you may even spot a seal.
