Elephant seal pups are slow on land. If an elephant seal pup beats a rescuer to the water, the rescuer should find another line of work. They’re really slow. But, just because they are slow, doesn’t mean they won’t bite. Every rescue demands focus, training and utilizing the proper techniques and equipment.
