      I would have loved to see this animal, even if only to be able to add it to my list of different marine mammal species seen; currently 10 Cetacea, 17 Pinnipedia, 4 Carnivora and 4 Sirenia.

      The chances of one turning up anytime soon are slim, to say the least, but I guess anything can happen...

      What cetacea Baldur? An what 4 Carnivora? I can only think of polar bears, marine and sea otters.

      I wasn't specific enough; with 4 carnivora species I meant Polar Bears and three subspecies of Sea Otter. I'd have to send you the complete PDF list in an e-mail; PM me your e-mail address please.

      Yes, a great shame he didn't survive longer. He was just starting to develop a proper 'hood' when I was there, and even inflated it a couple of times.
