This cute baby seal found off a Russian island was just a little different than the rest. It was ginger, not black, and wasn’t playing with the other seals – it was forced to fend for itself.

Luckily, a local dolphinarium adopted the seal, and he is now one happier little guy. Which is a lot like the happy ending of a somewhat more famous fellow golden seal.
