Common Seal

Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary is home to Bubbles and his son, Ed, who are all Common Seals. Bubbles is 14 years old now and loves blowing bubbles in the water, which is where his name came from! He is also partially sighted, but this doesn’t stop him finding his fish at dinner time. Seals, otherwise known as waterdogs are intelligent, interactive and fun to watch, with individual personalities.
