This Month in Photo of the Day: Animals

An elephant seal mother and pup nuzzle to learn each other’s smell. Before weaning at about three weeks, the 90-pound (40-kilogram) newborn could triple its weight, while the nursing mother may lose a third.

本月每日一图的主题是:动物

一对象海豹母子用鼻子相互摩挲着,来记住彼此的气味。在约三周大断奶时,出生时90磅(40公斤)重的象海豹幼仔体重可以增加两倍,而它妈妈则会比原来轻1/3。
