The little known Crabeater Seal, Lobodon carcinophagus, is possible one of the most amazing mammals  in the world. At a population of 8 to 50 million (LAWS 1973), it is perhaps the second most numerous large species of mammals on Earth, after humans. More than half the seals in the world is a Crabeater Seal.
