Cute Baby Fur Seal Crawls Over Ice Near Lake Baikal, Russia, Captured By Photographer Alexey Trofimov

Fur seal pups are among the most beautiful animals on the planet. They have big black eyes, a wavy mustache, and a luxuriant coat of fur. However, these creatures are really shy, cautious, and difficult to catch on camera. Many professional nature photographers have spent months or years approaching and photographing these babies. Success never comes easy, it comes with efforts and persistence.

Alexey’s dream came true. He ran an awesome shoot of the baby seal. “It was a very rare and special moment,” the photographer shared.

Do you know that these animals were once on the brink of extinction in the 19th century? Their fur was so appealing for hunters. Nowadays, there are still hundreds of thousands of baby seals to be shot or brutally beaten by bludgeon each year.
