Sunday Sketch: International Day of the Seal

A sketch and fact to celebrate the International Day of the Seal (March 22):

Many Arctic and Antarctic seals will emerge from below the water through ice
holes they carved for breathing and access points. Weddell seals (Leptonychotes
weddellii
, pictured here) sometimes use their teeth to create opening they need to
get from ice to sea! Do you think they get brain freeze?
