This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features

Fattened and then abandoned by mothers who leave to mate anew, weaned elephant seal pups stick close together until ready for a first season at sea.

See more photographs from the November 2008 feature story "Elephant Seals."

本月每日一图的主题是:国家地理杂志专题

象海豹把幼崽喂肥便抛下它们,去进行再次交配。两只刚断奶的小象海豹紧紧靠在一起,直到它们为海洋生活做好准备。

2009-03-31 fix: elephant seal是指象海豹(Mirounga),walrus才是海象(Odobenus);象海豹属于海豹科(Phocidae),海象属于海象科(Odobenidae);象海豹也作sea elephant,海象也作sea horse。
