This adorable seal pup, born with rare brownish-red fur, blue eyes and pink flippers was abandoned by his mother, shunned by other seals and left to fend for himself.
The rare albino seal (who is nearly blind) was discovered by photographer Anatoly Strakhov in Russia’s Tyuleniy Island.
We’re happy to report that staff from a nearby aquarium rescued the lonely seal and have taken it into their care.
