Channel Islands National Park
Source: Channel Islands National ParkElephant Seal males may weigh up to 6,000 pounds. Females are generally less than 2,000 lbs. After breeding in December and January at the Channel Islands they swim to the Bering Sea to feed on squid and deep water fish. They return to the islands in the spring to molt, then return to Alaska to feed some more.
