How thick are seals blubber?
Seal blubber can be two inches thick underneath the skin. This could average about 528 pounds of pure blubber which helps them stay warm during cold temperatures.
Seals are remarkably adapted to ocean living. These aquatic mammals have powerful sleek bodies that are encased in blubber and taper down into a tail. Their thick no-neck physiques and loosely interlocked vertebrae make them strong and flexible enough to surf the waves and navigate ice and rocky shores. They've got blubber, or fat, to keep them warm
Most Marine Mammals have a thick layer of blubber to act as insulation, because they are warm-blooded but live on ice flows and in the nearly frozen ocean. The ones in the Arctic and Antarctic most of the year have the thickest blubber (Right Whales, Blue Whales, which are both vegetarian migrators) and those in slightly warmer parts of the oceans have less blubber /total body weight. Look at seals and sea lions, they show…
The animals that have blubber are: whales, seals, sea lions, elephant seals, walruses and 40% of Americans most aquatic and/or semi-aquatic animals. Don't forget penguins, a lot of seabird chicks have a heavy blubber layer which is lost before fledging. Most animals with blubber live in freezing and/or arctic climates.
