enamoured with these fuckers..
alternating between leapord seal and walrus pictures until the last two pictures which are both new zealand sea lions and whakahao in M膩ori (the language of spoken by the M膩ori people who are indigenous to mainland new zealand) the first pic of the whakahao is a pup and the second picture is of an adult female who are usually a more creamy grey compared to males who are quite distinctly different looking with much darker pelts and a larger size. seriously these fuckers look like pinneped capybaras or sometehng. all pictures sourced from

Hydrurga leptonyx or the Leopard Seal
This is the only seal that feeds primarily on warm blooded animals. Their favorite meal are penguins, and can they even make up 80% of its diet, eating about 5 a day. They aren't limited to hunting in the water, either. They climb onto the ice and grab any penguin that can't get away.

Leopart seal...... you are so
Differently shaped like.......
A missile.....
Ever ready to strike..........

Freckled like a raisin bread

May u never go unfed.....
Thank u thanks my leopard seal poem
