A seal pup born with rare brownish-red fur and blue eyes has been rescued from a beach on an island off Russia, in the Caspian Sea, after it was abandoned by its mother.
Photographer Anatoly Strakhov found the baby on Tyuleniy Island, away from the other seals on the beach.
“He was hiding and waiting for his mother to come and feed him,” Mr Strakhov said.
Mr Strakhov caught the seal and took it to a dolphinarium where it is being cared for.

He’s beautiful.

    That’s sad, but great somebody helped him. He’s cute.

    A real cute guy who just wants to be accepted as normal, glad that it has happy ending!
