The harbor seal is covered by a coat of short, thick hairs. These hairs are white to black. It also has four webbed flippers that help it move through the water.
Like other marine mammals, the harbor seal has a lower heart rate than land-dwelling mammals. Its body also has the ability to “transfer” blood supply to its vital organs when diving. It also has more blood than a land-dwelling mammal of comparable size, which allows it to retain more oxygen. These features are probably adaptations of the original created kind since the temperatures on land and in the ocean drastically changed following the global Flood and the Ice Age.
