Hold your breath, flatties - it's a seal!

15 February 2017
We know that marine creatures have finely tuned senses, but to be able to pinpoint from a distance a motionless, well-camouflaged flatfish in murky water through its breathing alone is sensitivity almost off the scale. That however is what researchers believe that harbour seals are able to achieve with the help of their whiskers.
