Common Seal Zoological Poster - Phoca vitulina
The Common or Harbor Seal lives in the temperate and Arctic coastlines of the Northern Hemisphere. Its body is covered in a thick layer of blubber, which keeps it warm, even in frigid waters. The harbor seal is a powerful swimmer and can dive up to 500 meters in search of food, which includes various types of fish and crustaceans. It is mostly solitary, but will congregate with other seals during mating season. This is one of a wonderful series of Scientific German Educational Charts, created in the 1950s and 60s and still produced by the original printer, internationally recognized for producing educational science charts since 1929. These charts are issued today using the original film and same methods as the first printing. They are printed without inscription for both classroom study and decorative purposes, with special attention paid to botanical detail and scientific accuracy.
Mounted on linen canvas stretched on wooden rods for display, each measures 44.5 inches tall by 32.25 inches wide (85 cm x 120 cm), and comes with a nylon cord strung through the top wooden rod for easy hanging. Each comes securely rolled and will be shipped to you in a sturdy mailing tube. These lovely botanical posters are large, colorful and impressive pieces of science decor. Add a touch of vintage classroom style to your home today!
