A rare blue-eyed ginger fur seal pup has been found by scientists off the coast of eastern Russia.

The seal was spotted by marine biologist Vladimir Burkanov on Tyuleniy Island in the sea of Okhotsk last week.

The seal was born less than a month ago and Burkanov said it will be closely monitored for its safety.

However, there are fears it may be shunned by its colony.

Sadly, like all other recorded cases of full and partial albinism, the seal has bad eyesight.
