    I believe that the Caspian seal is the smallest species in the world and are only about 1.5 meters in length. Interestingly, the Caspian seal is the only marine mammal found in the Caspian Sea and currently considered imperiled due to unsustainable fishing practices. Unfortunately, the population has declined by as much as 90% and continues to fall.

    The Ringed Seal is the smallest species of seal. Their maximum size is 5 feet and they weigh up to 150 pounds. They live in the Arctic Sea, where they live solitary lives. They only assemble to breed, molt, and rest. 

    Elephant seals are the largest seal species and can get up to 20 feet long! They are heavy beasts, weighing in at 8,800 pounds!
