After returning from her fishing and feeding expedition, a mother Fur Seal comes ashore to find her baby who was left on the rocks at the Cape Palliser Seal Colony on the North Island of NZ. Once the mother finds here baby, a feeding frenzy for the young begins and this pattern will continue until the baby fur seal is about nine or ten months old.
