Eels stuck in endangered monk seals’ noses turning into unusual trend

'If you come across a Hawaiian monk seal mom and pup, please stay quiet and enjoy them from a distance, remaining behind any signs or barriers that might be present'.

What they do know: All the seals they have found sporting this peculiar nose accessory are doing fine.

The Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program has shared images of the creatures in what looks like an uncomfortable predicament.

After spotting the freaky pairing at French Frigate Shoals in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands this past summer, researchers quickly acted to relieve the seal of its discomfort.

Arsenal Boss Shows Class After Dropped Points At Old Trafford
Emery meanwhile, could see the merit in most of the side and only asked for a few new additions to take Arsenal to the next level. The derby especially was big for us personally, we knew they were three points in front and wanted to erase that, and we did it.

"Mondays...it might not have been a good one for you but it had to have been better than an eel in your nose", the Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program captioned the weird photo this week. "In nearly 40 years of monitoring, we have actually never observed this until a few years ago", Littnan said.

"Mondays...it might not have been a good one for you, but it had to have been better than an eel in your nose", the agency said in a Facebook post.

Monk seal researcher Charles Littnan, division director of the protected species division, said this is the third or fourth case scientists have observed of a seal with an eel in its nose. This whole situation could just be a "weird anomaly" or a "crazy statistical quirk, and we may never see it again", he added. "The eels, however, did not make it", writes marine biologist Brittany Dolan in the Facebook post.

A monk seal was spotted with an eel dangling from is nose. "They are looking for prey that likes to hide, like eels,".

Mika Singh ‘held in Dubai for harassing Brazil teen’
Singer Mika Singh has been detained in United Arab Emirates (UAE) after a girl complained against him for alleged harassment. A 17-year-old Brazilian model has accused Mika of sending "indecent photos" with promising her a role in a Bollywood movie.

But, the researchers note, 'we might not ever know'.

Another possibility is that the seal downed the eel and then regurgitated it up the wrong way, much like that time you snorted out milk when your friend told you an unexpected joke. "All the seals were released and haven't shown any issues from the incidents".

According to the NOAA Fisheries, researchers recorded a record number of pups born to the endangered Hawaiian monk seals on the main Hawaiian islands in 2018.

It's sad to hear that the eels didn't survive after being removed from the seal's nose, but considering they chose to enter the seal's nose without permission, they're really the architects of their own demise here.
