Northern elephant seal, adult male, scarring on chest from territorial conflict with other males during mating season.  Sandy beach rookery, winter, Central California, Mirounga angustirostris, Piedras Blancas, San Simeon Add To Light Table This bull elephant seal, an old adult male, shows extreme scarring on his chest and proboscis from many winters fighting other males for territory and rights to a harem of females, Mirounga angustirostris, Piedras Blancas, San Simeon, California Add To Light Table A great white shark shows scarring on the left side of its body, almost certainly the result of bites from another white shark.  Certain formidable prey, such as huge elephant seals who have claws and large jaws, can also inflict injuries on the shark during the course of an attack.  Such injuries, especially to the eyes or gills, could be fatal to the shark. In this case the shark has survived its injuries and the resulting scars are helping researchers identify this shark, Carcharodon carcharias, Guadalupe Island (Isla Guadalupe) Add To Light Table
