A blind grey seal sniffs her newborn pup. Even though she is totally blind in both eyes, this will not hamper her in raising her pup or continuing to live for many years. Seals can hunt successfully just by using their sensitive whiskers underwater, sight is not nessicary.
**NOTE ABOUT THE PUP** after several concerned comments about the pup in this picture, I'd like to add that this pup has blood on him because he was recently born and had been lying on his placenta. The blood is not his, and he was fine
