  1. The Leopard Seal is about 10 feet long and has a mouth larger than a polar bear! They feed on the penguins. Resting on an ice floe:

    I just can't believe all you have seen. That is so wonderful.

    Great looking seals Bob.

    Again thank you for sharing.

    Gotta go hunt for some more pics.

    This is like a treasure hunt. :>)))))
     
  3. I had no idea that they ate penguins. Interesting.
