The Southern Elephant Seal, Mirounga leonina (L.) generally gives birth to a single pup, but occasional twins have been suspected based on the presence of two pups suckling from one cow (Angot, 1954; Laws, 1956; Carrick, Csordas and Ingham. 1962). Only one almost definite case of twins has been descrtbed in this animal (Carrick et al., loc. cit.). One case of conjoined twins has been described (Laws, 1953), and another mentioned (Laws, 1956).
