Welcome to the forum! Have you tried using iNaturalist instead of Seek? I think Seek uses an older version of the CV model that suggests IDs.

You’ve got to admit, that polar bear has awesome camouflage.


I don’t think this is a bug, it’s just an example of the limits of Seek and computer vision suggestions. Was this a photo you imported into Seek, or was it taken with the Seek camera?

I haven’t delved into using my computer. Is there a specific inaturalist app or is it all PC based?

There are iNaturalist apps for both Android and iOS. The most feature-rich version is the website: Seek is intentionally limited to work without a live internet connection and give privacy for younger users.
