Here's some cuteoverload to start your Tuesday off: Adorable baby seals get almost as much recognition in the world of conservation as giant pandas, polar bears, and other genetically good-looking species (to humans, that is) -- but they're still undeniably cute.

Yet seals -- some of which are endangered thanks to fishing, hunting, and the fur trade -- are some of nature's most fascinating creatures: Some can dive as far as 1,000 meters underwater, others grow to weigh 8,800 pounds -- and they're as comfortable on ice floes as they are underwater or on land. Here are the most charming representatives of 10 different versions of this very versatile species.
