Names that other countries have for this feature:
A glacial meltwater stream, 1.4 mi long, draining from the W margin of Commonwealth Glacier into the NE end of Lake Fryxell, in Taylor Valley, Victoria Land. The name was suggested by Diane McKnight, leader of a USGS team that studied the hydrology of streams flowing into Lake Fryxell in several seasons, 1987-94. The name commemorates the encounter with a living Weddell seal. The seal wandered into the area N of Lake Fryxell during November 1990 and was evacuated by helicopter to New Harbor after it entered the camp area. A mummified seal is prominent at the mouth of the stream.
