Deadly Leopard Seal


?More frightening than the canines of the large female was the deep jackhammer sound she let loose that rattled through my chest. She was warning off another leopard seal that had snuck behind me. It worked?the visitor moved on.

It?s always a great day when a massive leopard seal decides not to eat you whole. It?s an even weirder day when that same leopard seal decides to feed you a fresh penguin.?In the link is a video from National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen, who was on assignment in Antarctica to capture?leopard seals?in the wild when he was approached by a massive female with jaws twice as big as a grizzly bear. What happened next is nothing short of epic.
