I hope this shot has not been posted here before. If it has, please excuse my advanced age for the memory lapse. It shows a harem of seals sunning on the beach. The boating all around did not seem to bother it.
HERD, HAREM*, TRIP or ROOKERY* of seals
A POD of seals (a small herd)
* Tom Clarke has commented - "I note that you list harem for seals.
A harem usually refers to a group of female seals who have been organized
or collected by a single male for breeding purposes."
* Leigh-Anne Kolasinski advises that the term "rookery" is normally used
for the place where seals give birth rather than as a collective noun.
Another term used for on land habitat of seals/sea lions is 'haul-out'
but this would not be used as a collective noun.
