Even in the Bitter Cold of the Antarctic, Leopard Seals Want to Make Friends


A few years ago, National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen went to Antarctica to take pictures of leopard seals. He spotted a massive one, and (bravely!) went into the water to snap some photos. Then, the seal saw him. She dropped the penguin she was holding, swam right up to him, and put both the camera and Paul’s head in her mouth!What she did next was even more surprising; she pulled away, and started to bring him food!
