Antarctic Animal Encounters - Fur Seal 2
Warming up by playing in the sea with a mate

Walking along the shore-line on rocks between about a half and two meters above sea-level puts you in a great position to see into the crystal clear water and more importantly, to see the seals that are swimming and playing about in the sea. These are young and very playful sub-adults. The great thing about this situation is that you can get really close to the seals, almost as close as you can get at the zoo without even trying. Squat down and they carry on playing as if you're not even there.

There are few animals that seem to enjoy playing in the water quite as much as young fur seals do.
