Dive Dry with Dr. Bill

Harbor and Elephant Seals

Available Now

This Blu-Ray disk contains three 22-minute episodes of Dr. Bill's cable TV show "Munching & Mating in the Macrocystis." The first episode focuses on the harbor seal (Phoca vitulina) while the other two cover the northern elephant seal (Mirounga angustirostris).

Almost all the harbor seal footage was taken down in La Jolla, Califor- nia, with much of it at the Children's Pool. Given that, most of it is of the seals topside on sandy beaches.

The elephant seal footage was shot almost entirely at Point Piedras Blancas near Hearst Castle on Highway One. The first episode deals with their physical features, geographic distribution, history, migration and feeding while the second focuses on male dominance hierarchies, birthing, nursing, weaning, mating, nursery locations and threats.
