    wing footed animals are called: Pinnipeds.

    To help them fly through the water, these animals have flippers instead of arms and legs. The flippers look like fins, or "wings," and this is why seals, sea lions, and walruses are all called pinnipeds, which means "wing-footed." Pinnipeds have streamlined, cigar-shaped bodies that slip through the water easily. Strong muscles propel their bodies, and this helps to make these animals very good swimmers. Some pinnipeds swim long distances, and some dive deep to find food. Some seals, gliding under the ice, can hold their breath for almost an hour.
