New ways of communication!

Hello everyone!

A new way of communication in the marine world was discovered!!

The species in question is the Grey Seal. Besides all the known communications of this species, it was found on a study that they can also clap their flippers underwater, which was never seen in the wild!

The hypothesis is that they use this movement/sound on the breeding season to show how strong they are to catch the attention of potencial mates.

Sound is very important in the marine environment because it’s how animals communicate, mate and feed, which are all essential for the survival of the species! That’s why we need to have updated knowledge to protect marine life!
