A large, predatory marine mammal.

Elephant seals are amphibious mammals significantly larger than common domestic livestock (2-5 times the size of a standard cow). Elephant seals can be tamed and kept as pets, but their real value lies in their butchering returns. By breeding elephant seals, your meat industry can sustain your entire fortress with food to spare. Note, however, that it takes five years for elephant seal pups to reach full adult size.

Unlike most animals, there is a significant size difference between sexes of elephant seals. Males grow to more than three times the size of female elephant seals.
