This young Hawaiian monk seal is Holokai, the first son of Ua Malie and the first grandson of the legendary Honey Girl.
His mom already abandoned him therefore he needs to consume his own fat stores to develop the strong swimming muscles necessary for diving and foraging. A few weeks later, he will be strong enough to catch fish. Until then, Holokai spends his time mostly with napping.
Image was taken on the North Shore of Oahu.
