It's pretty big for a seal though, the bones are suposed to be sticking out 2.4m above the waterline and yet the head is underwater. Maybe a walrus?

The head is gone, often when a marine mammal dies, the head detaches from the rest of the body because it is so heavy. I took the 2.4 meters to mean that 2.4 meters was the length of the part of the skeleton that is sticking out of the ice. Either way, 8 feet or so is a pretty big animal.
