There are also two subspecies of ringed seals that are pure freshwater. By the way, the Baikal seals were formed after the ringed seals were land-sealed.
ForwardCharcoal Roasted Pork HeadPusa sibirica belongs to the genus Ring Spotted Seals of the Seal Family. As the name implies, this seal is only found in Lake Baikal, the deepest freshwater lake in the world, and is the only freshwater fin-footed animal in existence. Of course, seals can't be found in inland freshwater lakes. Zoologists believe that the seals should migrate from the Arctic Ocean to prehistoric Lake Baikal (when Lake Baikal should have waterways to connect with the ocean), and be isolated here as the crust changes, and gradually adapt to the thinning water of the lake.
Even in appearance, it's hard to believe that someone can confuse the spotted seal with the Baikal seal: the Baikal seal is fat and round, while the body of the spotted seal is relatively long; the Baikal seal's body is shiny black, and the spotted seal is gray and covered with large and small spots.
