Baby Elephant Seals Spoon With Photographer

10/04/2011

Charlie Bird, a nature photographer, traveled to Antarctica to take in the wonders of the cold continent. On his travels he met a pair of enormous baby elephant seals that wanted to cuddle. After watching this video, I am glad to see than the seals ultimately chose to roll off of him after they were done cuddling!

What do you think these seals are really trying to do?

1) Keep warm?

2) Show him love?

3) Get their picture taken?

4) Make the penguins jealous?

5) Suffocate him so that they could take his camera?
