(via This Is What it’s like to Be in a Leopard Seal’s Mouth : The Scuttlefish)
“I slipped into the water terrified of what might happen and I swam up to this leopard seal. My legs were shaking and I had dry mouth…she took my whole head and camera inside her mouth…”
National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen went to Antarctica to photograph a leopard seal and came across the biggest seal his guide had ever seen. After trying to engulf him, the seal began to nurture Nicklen, bringing first live, then injured, then dead penguins as he continuously rejected her offerings. This continued for four and a half days.
