Leopard Seal Eats A Penguin, Antarctic Peninsula, Weddell Sea, Southern Ocean

The leopard seal has many features analogous to other species. For example the forearm and hand bones are similar in structure to those found in many mammal, reptile, and bird species. However, in the leopard seal, the fingers are covered in a web of skin, which they use to propel themselves through the water.
The leopard seals share homologous features with its close relatives, the lobodontine seals. They all have dark fur on the tops of their bodies and lighter fur on their underbellies. Though the colors vary between these species, the colored fur serves the same function, which is camouflage against predators and as it stalks its prey.
