Wildlife conservation filmmakers Richard Sidey (previously) and Aliscia Young compiled absolutely delightful footage of enormous elephant seals in Antarctica and on South Georgia Island. The earless, large-nosed mammals happily rolled around on the beach, took naps, argued a bit with one another, and even did a bit of exercise to keep themselves in shape.
A 3-minute montage featuring one of my favourite critters, the Southern Elephant Seal. How can you not love them?
A second related video shows the seal elephants lying in the sun, scratching their respective itches.
I couldn’t resist putting together another three-minute montage of these delightful beasts.
