Cry of the Leopard Seal

Category: Nature

 

Photo and caption by Taylor Barth

Leopard seals are the second largest species of seal, yet considered to be the most aggressive of them all. It will grab penguins and smaller seals by their feet thrashing them back and forth against the ground. This ritual may take as little as four minutes to complete. When viewing in the wild, as this seal is, caution is essential for survival.

Location: Antarctic Peninsula
