Seals

We have quite a few Fur seals around the base at the moment, you have to be careful as they are vicious and they smell terrible.

This is a Crabeater seal I hope to get a photo of a Leopard seal this winter they are the equivalent of a Great White shark down here.
Leopard seals can grow over 5 meters long and have a face like a dinosaur with huge teeth.
They eat other seals and penguins.
Sadly one killed a marine biologist (Kirsty Brown) here on the 22 July 2003.
