Bull beachmasters

A gathering of elephant seals extends 2 miles along the beach. These females have returned to land for the breeding season and are presided over by a single male, the beachmaster. Each beachmaster has his own harem of perhaps 100 females and he has to battle other males many times a day to keep control of his patch and the females on it.
