You can find Yale's incredible evolutionary and ecological chat here:
And just a little recap, seals are in the Mammalian order Carnivora. Humans are in the Mammalian order Primates - 82.1 millions years ago the 'magnorder' of Boreoeutheria split into Euarchontoglires (which later gave us Primates) and Laurasiatheria (which gave us Carnivora).
Bec also references ‘On Writing’ by Stephen King in her dinglett.
