The seal is a mammal that spends most of its life in the ocean. Seals are a kind of Pinnipeds, or mammal with flippers instead of feet. Various kinds of seals live in both warm and cold parts [polar] of the world's oceans. A few kinds live in fresh water. Seals are carnivores that eat fish and sea birds. They are closely related to sea lions and walruses.
