The final stop of the day last saturday was at the Elephant Seal haul-out just north of San Simeon. It’s been several years since I’ve stopped at the popular viewing spot and I don’t remember seeing such a large number of them before. The majority seemed to be molting females but there were also some males in the mix. Several of them were fighting with each other and one poor female was getting chased by multiple bulls.
