Snoozing Seal Snores Loudly After a Long Afternoon of Swimming
"Seals often make snoring noises just like we do, but they do it when they are awake as well," a representative of the Bristol Zoo said.
This snoring seal was caught in the middle of an afternoon nap.
Pablo, an 8-year-old seal at the Bristol Zoo in England, can be heard making deep breathing and clicking sounds as he takes a rest by the water.
Zookeepers say that’s the sound of a seal’s snore.
“Seals often make snoring noises just like we do,” Mikolaj Zybala, of the Bristol Zoo, said in a statement. “But they do it when they are awake as well.”
The zoo says the warm sunshine tempted Pablo to take a quick nap after a long day of swimming.
Pablo is one of five South American fur seals at the zoo.
They are native to the coasts of Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and the Falkland Islands.
The species have become less populous in the wild because they are hunted for their fur, according to the zoo.
