Adonis of Cyprus

Good morning fact for you:
Mediterranean monk seals are nearly extinct and are not only the most endangered pinniped (seals, sea lions, and walruses) species, but are also one of the rarest animals in the world. Their small remaining population is estimated to be less than 400 seals.
Adult male and female Mediterranean monk seals measure about 2.4m in length on average. Adult males have an average weight of 315 kg, adult females are slightly smaller at an average weight of 300 kg. Average life span is 20-30 years.
In Cyprus we have 9 permanent resident monk seal, and the 1 male, Adonis, caters to all 8 females loving needs.

Mmmm....Mister Lovah Lovah!
