Laughing Gray Seals

Species: Gray Seals | Location: National Seashore, Cape Cod, MA, United States

This herd of female gray seals had "hauled out" onto a sandbar at low tide to catch some rays. Several of the seals were vocalizing, but these two picked up their heads and seemed to share a joke with each other.
