Comments Mindy Viechniki at Allied Whale took this photo a couple of winters ago... she had been called to check out a seal on the ice (it is new to us Mainers to see "ice seals") ... she watched him/her for a while took photos and determined she was fine.

This page is a Tree of Life Leaf Page.

Each ToL leaf page provides a synopsis of the characteristics of a group of organisms representing a leaf at the tip of the Tree of Life. The major distinction between a leaf and a branch of the Tree of Life is that a leaf cannot generally be further subdivided into subgroups representing distinct genetic lineages.

For a more detailed explanation of the different ToL page types, have a look at the Structure of the Tree of Life page.
