Seal with Eel out its nose

An Hawaiian monk seal has been photographed with a spotted eel dangling from its nose.

Apparently researchers say the phenomenon has been seen a handful of times in the past few years.

Researchers say “we might never know” how the eel came to be stuck in the endangered mammals mouth but they have their suspicions.

“Hawaiian monk seals forage by shoving their mouth and nose into the crevasses of coral reefs, under rocks, or into the sand,” a marine scientist said.

“They are looking for prey that likes to hide, like eels. This may be a case of an eel that was cornered trying to defend itself or escape.

“Alternatively, the seal could have swallowed the eel and regurgitated it so that the eel came out the wrong way.”
