This is from an Instagram post by the Point Reyes National Seashore: "At Point Reyes National Seashore, we don't typically see fresh shark bites on the large male elephant seals. But, recently, we have seen 3 subadult elephant seals with very fresh shark bites, and a photographer witnessed a white shark feeding on a harbor seal in Drakes Bay. So all of this leads us to believe there is a white shark hanging out in Drakes Bay. We know they are in the area at different times of the year, but we don't usually see them going after the large elephant seals. These three seals are the lucky ones that have survived a shark trying to make a meal out of them. Elephant seals have an amazing ability in healing their wounds, and these seals will most likely survive since the bite was only in their blubber layer."
