Seals are medium to large sized mammals that can reach lengths between 1.20 and 6 meters. The weight fluctuates extremely between the species and is between 25 kilograms for females and more than 4 tons for males.
The seal's body has a torpedo-shaped shape: the flattened head is only indistinctly separated from the rest of the body by a thick neck, the tail only preserved as a rudiment. The limbs are also embedded in the body up to the elbow or knee, so that only the forearm and thigh are exposed. All these properties reduce the flow resistance and thus serve to adapt to life in the water.
