The bulls were fairly large, and often 'patrolled' the waters along the beach. Their barking was quite attention getting, as was their size once they came onshore, and we could see how big they really were. After laying and rolling in the sand, their otherwise smooth, dark fur would be coated, giving them an odd appearance.
