elephant seals

We drove up by the Hearst Castle and saw the elephant seals. they don't seam to mind humans all the much. we walked right up to a few of them to say hello. state and federal law prohits touching them, but it didn't appear as though they would of minded to terrible much. the males (the ones with the trunks) weight from 2-2.5 tons. when the move, they look like slugs.
