How Nikolaus the Seal Got a Second Chance at Life
A grey seal cub named Nikolaus licks a window at the seal enclosure in Friedrichskoog, northern Germany on Dec. 19, 2014. The baby seal was abandoned by its mother and would not have a chance to survive without human help. Nikolaus will be fed up at the enclosure for two to three months until it has reached the minimum weight of about 100 pounds before he is released.
