Mystery Skeleton Identified

The mystery skeleton I found on the beach the other day has been identified and to my surprise, it has been identified as a previously undiscovered prehistoric sea mammal. Haha, I wish but I am just kidding. It has been identified as none other than a common grey seal by some helpful folks at the Bedford Institute at Dartmouth, NS. Yes, that`s right, one of those cute, blubbery creatures that we often see sunning on rocks, bobbing around in bays and playfully swimming around harbours. So the next time you have an urge to approach, pet or cuddle one of these cute and seemingly friendly creatures, the photos of those teeth should make you think twice!
