Face-Off With a Deadly Predator
The leopard seal – a 3 metre long voracious predator found throughout the Antarctic and sub-Antarctic. As you can see from this image, they eat penguins as well as smaller seals and fish.
These things are frankly, terrifying. There are even accounts of them attacking divers.
However, it seems that some do have a softer side. In 2009 a female leopard seal seemed to “adopt” a National Geographic photographer, and spent four days attempting to teach him to hunt. When this failed, she would bring him dead or dying penguins and try to feed him.
