The day's researchers try to & # 39; Understand why Hawaiian monk seals keep up with them; get slippery eels put up their beds, and add to the challenges facing sex at risk.
Earlier this week, officials with the Hawaiian Monk Administration (NOAA) Hunting Runner Program developed a picture that shows Hawaiian monks seal with a long eel in its nose.

"Monday … and it may not have been good for you, but it has to be better than an eel inside," said a post in a post Facebook. "We have recited this situation before, which was noted a few years ago. We have now found seals of young people with eels that are becoming increasingly a snake".
But researchers are still left behind why and how this will happen.
"Our researchers have looked at this situation three or four times now. We do not know whether this is just anxious statistics or we can see more eels in seals in the past come, "said NOAA. "Hawaiian monk seals are provided by mouth and nose behavior into coral reef stones, under rocks or into the sand. ; look for their favorite prey to hide, like eels. "

The NOAA suggested that the seal may have turned the eel and the slippery creature had to protect itself or escape before it came to seam.
"Or, the seal may have to swallow the eel and restore it until the eel out the wrong way," said NOAA. "We may never know."
Inspectors noted that the eels were successfully removed in all situations.
There are only officer estimates that approximately 1,400 Hawaiian monks are still wild, and most are found near the Hawaiian Islands in the northwest.
