Removed "this method of locomotion is called galumphing" from description of movement. Found no source other than this page that uses that term to describe movement of seals, most dictionaries that contain a definition of the term cite Lewis Carroll's poem Jabberwocky as the origin.

The article gives the Latin names "Pagophilus groenlandica" and "Phoca groenlandicus" for the Harp (Greenland) Seal. "Pagophilus" is masculine and "Phoca" is feminine, hence the names should be "Pagophilus groenlandicus" and "Phoca groenlandica". --Death Bredon (talk) 09:18, 8 November 2011 (UTC)
