Can't believe people would beat cute creatures like this to death.
Edit: I've been told that they're killed in one hit and it's done for practical reasons so take what I say with a grain of salt.
This buddy would be an absolute hit while clubbing.
King penguins in the background.
They're like slightly shorter emperor penguins, but don't live in Antarctica.
When I see things like this I just wonder *what* the seal is thinking.
Can it conceptualize the human as another distinct entity that's unusual in this environment? Does it just think it's a funny coloured fellow seal? Will it remember it's encounter that friendly ape-thing years laters? Or is it just following basic instincts like an organic machine, poking everything in case it is a food source, but not retaining any recollection.
I find myself fascinated as to how different species *think*.
/r/PeopleFuckingDying would have a blast with this.
Them triple chins when it scrunches it’s face in. Awww
Judging from the size and chub I'd guess this to be a baby elephant seal.
this cute seal has *very* sharp teeth. rip your toes off in the blink of an eye
Does anyone know why we aren’t allowed to pet them? Apparently we have to lay still
