25. Monk Seal

It’s hard to tell when monk seals are pregnant to the untrained eye because let’s face it, they’re always pretty chubby. This seal is definitely pregnant and seems to be enjoying a nap on the beach, absorbing some of that beautiful Hawaiian sun. Although she looks to be enjoying herself, we can’t imagine flopping around on the beach is too easy while that pregnant. Babies are precious to all animals, but they mean a little extra for the monk seal because she can only have one every year and a half, and many don’t survive past infancy.
