actually, yes. I just got myself one of these sweatshirts from H&M a few months ago. not sure if you're looking for men or women...they're sold for men, i suspect they'd be fine for women too, though. http://www.hm.com/us/product/470…

Just sharing some photos from a reporting trip I was on, and if you read the piece, you'll notice that I disclosed plenty at the bottom. You'll also notice, perhaps, that the original title of the post is simply "Photo Safari: Lions."

It's actually even a bit more complicated than what I wrote in the article. Pinnipeds are broken into three groups: the odobenids (walruses), the phocids (seals), and the otariids. Sometimes the phocids are called "true seals" while the otariids are called "eared seals." Read more
