Gripe seals are found on the shores of Sverige, and in rivers and lakes that connect to the seas. They are irritable and more dangerous than they seem.
Lifespan: up to 8 years / Diet: Carnivorous / Rarity: Common in rivers and other waterways that connect to the sea
They are commonly white, light gray, or light brown in color, and have stripes running the length of their body. Their underbellies are white. They have ten eyes, all of which are black. They have huge wet noses and very long whiskers, and often look quite grumpy. Though they may not look particularly dangerous, they do have very sharp teeth that can kill a wolf.
Gripe seals are around six feet in length and easily weigh six hundred pounds.
Anything that moves is fair game for a gripe seal. Fish are much easier for them to catch, though.
It is extremely uncommon to find a gripe seal living on its own. Where there’s one, there’s usually others. They live in fairly large groups, and are extremely aggressive toward outsiders. Gripe seals are almost constantly hungry, and will lunge at and attack anything that gets too close. Each group has its own strict hierarchy; gripe seals often quarrel with one another for power.
Gripe seals breed all year round and have a gestation period of three months. They usually have two pups, but may have three or four.
