The Cape Fur Seal
The Cape Fur Seal, which is a brown fur seal or the South African is the largest and most robust fur seal of all. It has a large and broad head with a pointed snout that may be flat or upturned slightly. They have external ear flaps and their whiskers are very long, especially in adult males. Cape Fur Seal fore flippers are covered with sparse hair over about three-quarters of their length. The hind flippers are short relative to the large body, with short, fleshy tips on the digits.
The Southern African subspecies is on average slightly larger than the Australian subspecies. Males of the African subspecies are 2.3 meters in length on average and weigh from 200–300 kilograms. Females are smaller, averaging 1.8 meters in length and weighing an average of 120 kilograms.
