Monk Seals Exonerated by Crittercams

Hawaiian monk seals eat 600 pounds of fish a day and are damaging the reef ecosystem … not! Crittercams placed on the backs of the massively cute creatures are slowly debunking these misconceptions, according to Hawaii News Now.

They are also relatively gentle around reefs and are not damaging coral with their large movements.
