Honey Girl's daughter hangs out at Punalu'u beach

Posted: Updated:

If you felt like stretching out for a nap after feasting this Christmas, you were not the only one.

Ipo, the oldest daughter of Hawaiian monk seal Honey Girl, spent much of the day sleeping at a beach in Punalu'u.

A Marine mammal expert said the 12-year-old has been hauling out at this beach for the past week after feeding in the bay. Before that, she was spotted at the Kaneohe Marine Corps Base and Kualoa.

Ipo, who was born on Kauai, will sometimes be spotted with her mom, but so far has not been able to give birth to a live pup. Experts believe an injury from being hit by a boat when she was younger may be part of the problem.
