What type of habitat do Caribbean Monk Seals live?
Sadly, Caribbean monk seals are completely extinct. They were over hunted primarily for their blubber, which was used in a variety of applications, including fuel for lamps, before the invention of the light bulb, and lack of food was the final straw during the 1950's. They used to live in the tropical waters of the Caribbean islands, and hunted fish for food.
