COOL LEOPARD SEAL FACTS!
• Leopard seals do not play well with others! Infamous for their exceptionally nasty demeanor and solitary nature, they generally hunt alone and are typically never seen with more than one or two other individuals at a time.
• The ends of the leopard seal’s mouth are permanently curled upward, creating the illusion of a smile or menacing grin. This feature adds to their already intimidating presence, and is not to be trusted. However happy they may be to see you, they are potentially aggressive animals that will always be keeping an eye out for the next meal. In the rare occasion that they haul out on land, they’ll defend their personal space by issuing a warning growl at anything that comes too close.
• That said, when National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen dove head first into Antarctic waters to catch an up-close glimpse of leopard seals in their natural habitat, he encountered a sympathetic female leopard seal that seemed to think that he was a smaller, less intelligent leopard seal. For days, the seal brought him penguins that ranged from mostly alive to completely dead. She was trying to feed him, or was at least trying to teach him how to hunt and feed on his own. Okay, our hearts have literally melted all over the floor.
