Along the northernmost coastline of China in Panjin, Liaoning province, lives a group of marine spirits known as the "pandas of the sea" – spotted seals. They are the only pinnipeds that breed in Chinese waters and are classified as national first-class protected wildlife. These cute yet fierce creatures have an endearing way of walking on land, relying on the movement of their forelimbs and upper body. See how spotted seals walk!
