No, seals are mammals and give live birth - they do not lay eggs.

No, but some mammals do lay eggs (see below for more)

Seals are mammals and most mammals do not lay eggs. The one exception to this is the platypus. The Platypus is a mammal. Event though a platypus may look like a bird for its bill of a duck and has a duck's webbed feet, it also has hair on it, and it has mammary glands which makes it a mammal. There are only a few egg-laying mammals out there. This question is good for anyone who has questions about platypuses being considered mammals or questions about whether mammals lay eggs.

My answer is 'No'. Seals are mammals. They give birth to their young alive. They don't lay eggs.

No. Seals are mammals. They give live birth to babies, and nurse them with milk. No eggs laid.
