Fitness Friday — The fur seals will not be outdone

Last week we learned that the harbor seals can jump high out of the water, but let's not forget about the Northern fur seals! Cordova will not be outdone.

Fur seals have long front flippers, about the length of our arms, that support their weight and allow them to walk on land. Harbor seals have much shorter front flippers, about the size of our hands, that won't support their weight.

The harbor seals did some impressive jumping out of the water, but there is no way they can compete on land with "Air Cordova!" in this week's video. How high can you jump off of the ground? How about out of the water? Brrrr. You might want to wait until summer to try that!
