monachus monachus (mediteranian seal)

Sredozemna medvjedica (lat. Monachus monachus) je vjerojatno najrjeđi perajar, ali i jedan od najugroženijih sisavaca na svijetu. Dio je porodice pravih tuljana (Phocidae). Rasprostranjena je ograničeno na Antlantiku, oko Madeire i Kanarskih otoka, a najviše uz obale i otoke Sredozemnog mora. U Jadranskom moru je poznata od najstarijih vremena, pa su joj različiti narodi i autori nadjenuli i različita imena kao dalmatinska medvjedica, jadranska medvjedica, morski fratar i morski čovjek.[1]

Widespread is restricted to the Atlantic Ocean, around Madeira and the Canary Islands, and the most along the coast and islands of the Mediterranean Sea. The Adriatic Sea is known since ancient times, and her various peoples and authors entered can and different names like Dalmatian monk, Adriatic monk seal, sea monk and marine man.
