How to use "Pachydermal" in context?
Pachydermals, or elephant seals, are one of the four extant subfamilies of the family Phocidae, as well as the only one to inhabit the Southern Hemisphere. They are the largest seal species in the world, with males weighing in at 1000-3000 kg and females weighing 650-1800 kg. Beside their body size, the defining characteristic of pachydermals is their thick, elongated skin, which is up to 2 m long and 1.5 m wide. The thick skin provides some insulation against the cold temperatures and harsh environment of the Southern Ocean.
