No, Seals cannot walk.
The Steller's Sea lion (Eumetopias jubatus), is also known as the Northern sea lion. It lives in the northern Pacific.. The population of eastern and Asian steller sea lions (California, British Columbia and south east Alaska) is currently at the status of "under threat". The western Steller's sea...
They mate and give birth on land. Births occur mid-May to mid-July and peak in June. In May, dominant males (nine years and older) establish their breeding territories on rookeries, and maintain them for approximately 40 days without eating. During this time, the males establish a harem and mate...
Their main diet is penguins and fish.
No It Isn't Because They Have 4 Predators, And Here They Are: Great White Sharks, Orcas, Other Leopard Seals And Most Of All, Humans.
In the Northwest Atlantic area between Newfoundland and Greenland.
The norm is around 1400 pounds.
Yes it costs a lot of money
Although Leopard seals have a fearsome reputation and are a top predator, the Killer whale is top of the food chain and will actively hunt and kill leopard seals.
It's a vertebrate because, it has a spine
Some do like polar bears
Harp seals have one baby at a time because although there milk is rich with fat they could never produce enough milk to feed more than one baby. Seals start breading at the age of 2 or 3 and breed at least once per year

To answer your question, you would have to provide the species of shark and whale. For example, a sand tiger shark - one of the more common breeds seen closer to land - can grow up to about 10½ feet (a little over 3 meters), whereas one of the longest bottlenose dolphins grew to be about 13 feet...

Because the seal population is decreasing and the reason they are killing the harp seals is because of the cod. And the snow leopards are starving and so are the polar bears. And the government is killing the seals for their hide to make leather. And i don't know hot they could kill them with that...
yes they travel around alot
A seal has many adaptations to allow them to dive underwater forlong periods. They have more red blood cells per ml of blood thanother mammals allowing them to store more oxygen in the blood, itis also thought that their red blood cells are larger allowing eachcell to take in more oxygen. Each red...

A group of seals are called a "rookery",a "herd", a "harem", and a "pod"
The consumer in the food chain/web that eats the Austalian sea lion would be forced to find other food. If that consumer can't find other food then it would extinct as wel. And so on...
Seals are an economic resource. The meat is edible, and some kinds of seals have valuable fur as well. There are people who make their living by hunting seals. If they did not hunt seals they would have to find other employment, and there is a lot of unemployment in the world today.
No fur so less friction with the water.
seal live on the coast The habitat of a seal varies by location. Some seals live in theAntarctic while others are found in warmer areas and there areseals in the eastern and western Pacific as well as the western andnortheastern Atlantic. They like land with rocks close to the oceanand live in areas...

The greatest difference is in size. The male elephant seal can be three to four times the size of the females. Also the males elephant seal has a conspicuous nasal wattle while the female has none. Other difference are apparent in other species of seals but that can be somebody else's turn.
