Also, I am horrified to learn that A) there is a Wookieepedia, B) there is a Wikipedia entry for it, and C) there is a Wookieepedia entry for that.

I take it that you're not a fan.
for that blog alone, the Chewbacca defense should be illegal. As for the inter-species sex thing - a topic untouched by Star Wars I note - well...
Does your kind Rishathra?
This units compatibility and social functions are currently undergoing debugging and field trials. This is after a lengthy and ongoing re-fit which seeks to rectify basic structural issues with large portions of its functionality. This unit is actively seeking volunteers to beta-test its new software. Voight-Kampf results are required.
Oh, good lord. Now I have to throw away my eyes.
"Where is the tuna, Solo?"
I'm guessing that's just a (well-done) replica. Afaik, there are no full-grown male elephant seals in captivity, and if there were, walking in front of a rearing one is a way to win a Darwin award.
That looks like a female to me. I admit I've only ever seen live elephant seals once, but I remember the males being considerably bigger than that.
That's definitely a male elephant seal. There is a great amount of sexual dimorphism in ellies, and while the females are large at 8-10' long, the males are 12-15'. According to that photo, the front half of the seal extends 6 to 7 feet above the ground, and the rear probably an equal amount. The mass, girth, and rearing behaviour of this individual is consistent with that of other males; females are more "sausage-like".

Male elephant seals have that freaky thing that hangs over their noses, though...hence the name.
The picture sure looks like he just tossed a fish into its mouth, though... yikes.

It seems to me a very reasonable solution to the problem of 'too much Star Wars specific stuff in the wikipedia database', but whatever.
Is that picture from the Baltimore National Aquarium? They have some huge elephant seals and also adorable little harbor seals (like the one in the lower right of the full-sized pic).
I love that picture. I think it is actually a stellers sea lion from a place in Washington state.
I assumed it was Photoshopped because the eyes look all wrong...
