Chacoda, the Atlantic harbor seal, has been practicing a special skill for a while. What do you think?
It's not unusual to seals at rest in this pose. It's called the banana posture—doesn't it kinda look like a curved banana? — and Chuck has been perfecting this for a while. Now that's a lot of crunches!
Seals in the wild also demonstrate this pose as on the Aquarium's Rescue Team blog.
This wild harbor seal appears to be resting based on the banana posture of its body.
