Polar Predator Personality

I never get to post on leopard seals. And truth be told, this video doesn't belong on Ugly Overload. But I have no other outlet, so I'll abuse this one. Besides, anything that eats penguins is a little bit ugly, right? Though, if they taste anything like chicken...

Thanks for the video, Ida. It's an amazing story.

Please tell me she didn't move THAT fast at the end???!!! That was just a still frame following the video right? Otherwise, Jesus, that's creepy if the thing can move so quickly.

a) it's freakishly cold water. not for me.
b) the seal has some pretty big teeth on that picture...

It's cute just looking at it - even with it's big teeth!

If penguins tasted good we'd have killed them all off by now.

You have to admit though, some leopard seals are pretty cute when they're babies...until they
grow up &eat a poor penguin. ):

So...did he ever eat the penguins?

Those teeth are very scary looking, and how could something that start out so cute as a pup, grow to be so frightening.
