  • Grey seals (Halichoerus grypus, meaning “hooked-nosed sea pig”) have grey and brown fur, sometimes with a pattern of blotches. They have no ears visible and a long muzzle. Their nostrils are parallel. They are larger and darker than a common seal, with flat or convex profile to its head (the common seal has a concave profile).

    Males can frow over 2 metres and weigh more than 200kg.

    Greys tend to pup in the Autumn. Grey seals are often seen in the Heart of Argyll.
