I think a spider made that hole, because of the spiderman-ish line hanging from it. Not sure what spider though. Or what nut/fruit that is. :confused:

I agree! Is it a sea dog?
Yes, although I believe it is not called sea dog in English (it is in German, well of course not "sea dog" but "Seehund" which is the same). Common seal is what my dictionary shows up with!

Taken on the island Helgoland, where they rest on the beach. Amazing experience to lie there with them!

Well luckily you knew what I meant.:) It's called zeehond here. I've seen one in the estuary close to me exeptionally far inland this autumn. A great experience.:)
