Face Off With A Leopard Seal

I love animal stories like this.... This National Geographic photographer, Paul Nicklen, wanted to get picture of leopard seals in the Arctic waters. By all accounts, the leopard seal is one of the deadliest predators in the Arctic, with a jaw that can open approximately 160 degrees and razor sharp teeth. What could have been a savage and devastating moment, ended up being a moment of compassion and sympathy.

  1. WOW, those are some awesome shots. I doubt think I could ever find myself wanting to do that but it is an awesome sight to see.
