Monachus (monk seals)

Wikipedia Abstract

Monachus is a genus containing the monk seals, a group of three pinniped species. They are the only earless seals that are found in tropical climates. They are now extremely rare, and the genus is in imminent danger of going entirely extinct, with only very limited genetic variation in the two surviving species.
