This is the first picture of a mother seal with her twin pups, which experts believe is a first for the UK.
The pair were born on November 29, at Horsey Gap, and are believed to be twins, but the Friends of Horsey Seals are looking into prices for DNA tests so they can prove for certain they are related.
Peter Ansell, chairman of the Friends of Horsey Seals, said: “We are certain that they are twins but we currently have people looking into the prices of how much these DNA tests cost.
“We have heard it could be anything from £90 to a couple of hundred pounds, which we might not be able to afford outright, so donations would be helpful in getting us to accomplish this.”
The Friends of Horsey Seals is a group that is run by volunteers and are looking for donations and for people to join as members.
