How much does a pet seal cost


If you’re planning a trip to the beach, or have recently found yourself in possession of a solid gold bathtub, chances are you’ve been thinking about buying a pet seal. Seals are super cute and friendly, particularly when you show them pictures of your cat. Moreover, they’re intelligent and easy to train! They make great guard animals for your solid gold bathtub. And since seals are aquatic mammals that spend much of their lives isolated on remote shores, they’re also excellent conversationalists who will enjoy talking with you about politics far into the night. But how much does it cost to own one? The answer is just as slippery as these umbrella-like friends themselves:

$500 to $2,000 in the U.S.

The cost of a pet seal depends on the age and type of seal, as well as how long it takes to train the seal.

A baby seal can cost $500 to $2,000 in the U.S. But if you want a full-grown adult seal, expect to pay anywhere between $3,000 and $5,000.

The training time will vary depending on what your needs are for your desired pet. Some people prefer to have their seals trained for tricks like fetching food or performing tricks such as sitting up or rolling over; others prefer more basic training so they can interact with their seals on a more personal level without worrying about being bitten by accident while trying to play with them (some seals are prone to biting). A professional trainer can help set up an appropriate plan based on what you want from your new friend!

$900 to $11,000 if you’re adopting a former working seal.

The cost of a pet seal depends on the seal’s age and condition. Seals are expensive to buy, but it’s possible to find one from a rescue organization for as little as $900. However, if you’re adopting a former working seal or want to add an older animal to your household, the price can go up significantly.

According to Humane Society International (HSI), there aren’t any breeders in North America who raise seals for pets. Instead, most people obtain their animals through rescues that were previously used for entertainment or commercial purposes such as shows at aquariums or zoos. Many of these seals were injured during training and have been abandoned after they became too old or difficult to deal with; others were purchased by people who later abandoned them due to behavioral issues such as aggression toward people or other animals in their homes.

$3,000 to $4,000 for a hand-raised baby seal.

The cost of a baby seal depends on many factors. As you research breeders and seal prices, the following information can help you evaluate the value of their services:

  • The age of the seal at time of purchase. This is probably the most important factor in determining price. Baby seals are available for purchase as early as 6 weeks old, with an average starting age being 18 weeks old. The younger they are when purchased, the more expensive they tend to be due to increased risk that something will go wrong during their development (e.g., health issues or death). Older seals are also more commonly available than younger ones, so if you’re looking for one that’s closer to adult size within your budget range then consider this option!
  • The quality and experience of both breeder and buyer (if buying from someone outside your network). It’s easy enough for anyone with basic knowledge about marine animals such as seals or sea lions (e.g., how much space do they need?) but there are many variables involved in raising healthy offspring which only experienced breeders know about—things like diet requirements/allergies/sensitivity tests–and should be considered when evaluating whether it makes sense financially speaking before making any commitments from either side

it’s hard to find a pet seal at any price

It’s hard to find a pet seal at any price.

Let’s get something straight right off the bat: seals are not pets. They’re wild animals that can be dangerous, and they aren’t legal to own as pets in most places in the United States. If you’re thinking about buying a seal, selling one or breeding one for sale, think again! Seals aren’t legal to buy or sell as pets anywhere in America. They’re also illegal to breed (unless you have special permission from the government). These restrictions exist because it’s dangerous for both the animal and humans alike if someone buys an exotic pet like this without knowing what they’re doing first


If you’re still reading this, we can tell that you’ve got a bit of a pet seal obsession going on. But unless you’re an expert with seals who has the time, space and money needed to care for one properly (and legally), we wouldn’t recommend it.
