Summary: Being able to dive is what matters most for seal pups, but how do they learn to do it? Grey seal pups that can play in pools may have better diving skills once they make the move to the sea, and this could increase their chance of survival. Researchers have found that spending time in pools of water helps seal pups hold their breath for longer.
