Whenever I see a seal I have to remind myself that they are actually called sea lions. As in, lions of the sea. They may seem all cute with their big weepy eyes, tiny ears and flipper feat, but one once bit a woman’s nose clean off on Noordhoek beach because she tried to help it. Like those other vicious shits though, penguins, seals really are a delight to watch once in the water. They go from fat and awkward to acrobatic and streamline. Here’s some rather enjoyable footage of Cape Town’s smelliest things enjoying a bit of camera time in a promotional video for animalocean.co.za.
