Photo: New Zealand Fur Seal Pup Wairarapa New Zealand

A cute New Zealand Fur Seal Pup sits alone on the rocks at the Cape Palliser Seal colony in Wairarapa on the North Island of New Zealand.

A cute New Zealand Fur Seal Pup with his sad looking dark shaded eyes, sits atop the colorful rocks along the Wairarapa coastline on the North Island of New Zealand at the Cape Palliser Seal colony. A Fur Seal pup has a fuzzy coat of fur which will disappear after a couple of months eventually changing into a dark shade of brown as the seal matures.

The mother of this pup is off feeding in the coastal waters off Wairarapa and sometimes a few days pass before she returns to nurse. After about nine or ten months, the mother New Zealand Fur Seal Pup will discontinue nursing and the pup will be old enough to take on life by itself.

During the summer months at the Cape Palliser Seal colony, many of the pups will be left on the rocks where they clamber about mixing with other pups. This is the best time of year to visit the Cape Palliser Seal colony, the largest colony found on the North Island of New Zealand as the pups are unable to swim and are left to fend for themselves. ... continue below the picture...
