It’s Not Easy Being a Ginger Seal Pup

It’s
not easy being ginger, even for a seal. Here’s the story of a little seal
pup being abandoned by its sleek black family for having brownish red
fur:

The photographer [Anatoly Strakhov - ed], 61, said: ‘He was
hiding and waiting for his mother to come and feed him.

‘He had a very strange colour fur and looked different from
his two black brothers.

I was pleased to be able to capture such an unusual animal, but
the poor seal is almost blind and so was unlikely to survive in the
wild.’

Luckily, Mr Strakhov was with staff from a dolphinarium who took
it into their care.
