A.P. Coleman mentioned seals prospering in freshwater lakes in Labrador 800 feet above sea level [Coleman, 1941, p. 173]. There are also freshwater seals in Lacs Des Loups Marin on the Ungava peninsula of northern Quebec which are isolated from the ocean populations. Phoca vitulina mellonae is a landlocked group of harbor seals living in freshwater Seal Lake in Quebec, Canada.
Florida has an abundance of evidence for a great catastrophic flood, such as fossils of extinct animals and fishes in bone caves. Charles Ginenthal wrote:
In 1984, William R. Corliss stated that a bone bed had been discovered south of Tampa, Florida, with paleontologists declaring it one of the United States' richest fossil deposits. This bone bed yielded bones of more than 70 species of animals, birds and aquatic creatures. About 80% of the bones belong to plains animals, such as camels, horses, mammoths, etc. Bears, wolves, large cats and a bird with an estimated 30-foot wingspan were also represented. Mixed in with all the land animals are sharks' teeth, turtle shells, and the bones of freshwater and salt water fish. The bones are all smashed and jumbled together, as if by some catastrophe. The big question is how bones from such different ecological niches--plains, forests, oceans--came together.
