This little orange seal has been ostracized by his fellows for being ginger. Also, unfortunately, he is almost blind.
He was found waiting for his mother under a log on Tyuleniy Island in Russia. He was picked up and taken by staff at a dolphinarium to keep him from anymore emotional stress.
Good news though, the seal is doing much better. Now named Nafanya - after a lookalike Soviet cartoon character - the seal was given VIP treatment and has now moved into a plush new home at the country's leading aquarium.
Love a happy ending!
