Workers at the Museum of Science spotted a seal swimming in the Charles, so naturally, they tweeted for some help to the New England Aquarium, which will now look for the critter. To which the Museum of Science replied:

Awesome! And if you happen to notice any dinosaur fossils, we're happy to help.

Boston Magazine reports the seal may still be in the river this morning.

Patty Neal went to the Aquarium yesterday and spotted a seal that appeared to be pining for the fjords:

One of the harbor seals at the NE Aquarium was laying at the bottom of the tank not moving. I don't think he was asleep.

This morning, the Aquarium replied that the seal really was resting:

In molting season the seals slow down and can even grow algae.
