dc.description.abstract ABSTRACT: The diurnal variation of body temperature of an unrestrained Hawaiian monk seal, recorded by telemetry, was 1.0° C. Increased activity was the principal cause of increased body temperature in the seal. The body temperature of the animal was lowest when it was asleep on land in direct sunlight. In view of these results, an explanation is offered for the reported heat tolerance of Hawaiian monk seals in their natural habitat. en_US
