The Hawaiian Monk Seal is one of only two mammals endemic to Hawaii. They are critically endangered and seeing one on a Hawaiian beach is a rare and exciting sight. In this video watch as a male monk seal, H82, emerges from the ocean on a Maui beach only to find another seal, female RQ21, is already there. She is not happy about sharing the beach. As of this post, RQ21 is the oldest seal in Hawaii with an age of between 28-30 years of age.
