Perhaps you could be so kind as to provide a reference for the
notion that harp seals, or any other aquatic mammal, use eccrine
sweating. I've asked Morgan for this but it's been several weeks
now and she hasn't seen fit to reply or supply (a ref).

Keep in mind that, as you saw with the information on tears, if
your ref comes from Morgan, it very well might be inaccurate.
