she`s lucky to have the experience. I hope more organizations try and stop people from killing more of these amazing animals.

Cute and cuddly huh. That`s just a baby. Wait until a Bull Elephant Seal make you his bitch. Just give it a try.

@Space girl

thats the one thing most people dont understand. a majority of animals (mainly mammals) are very curious and if given enough time to study you, will realize you are not a threat. just dont make sudden movements

It was obviously not an aggressive adult elephant seal, otherwise I`d assume she would have moved. It was a curious young seal that approached slowly; it was not about to be violent. You should learn a little more about wildlife...

awwwww of the rest of my life

"That thing could rip her face off at any second."

yes, which is why it`s so impressive!

She`s being a very good observer as well. She isn`t using her hands to pat it or anything she`s just letting it check her out.

Most animals are like this (minus predators and some of the bigger herbavours), it`s quite amazing. As long as you don`t threaten them and you sit there quietly you can make friends and cuddle with an awesome squishy elephant seal like this >>

Car mechanic to customer: "Hmmm, it looks like you`ve blown a seal"

"Nah, I was just eating ice-cream, and some dribbled down my chin"

Quite amazing. Look at the seal, she was just as enchanted as the girl was. Stuff like this really makes you wonder why people can treat the world and it`s animals and environments they depend on like poo. (looking at you, BP)

Seals always remind me of one of my parents dogs. Big lovable curious things. You just want to take her (the seal not the girl ._.) home and keep her. Well I do atleast.

@ Batmanners: nah, thats a female elephant seal. the males have a wierd mini-trunk like nose that curves over thier mouth, which is why the species is called an elephant seal.

One of my professors goes to antartica sometimes to do research. She said that you are strictly forbidden to go after penguins BUT you are allowed to sit on the ice edge and if they come to you that is perfectly fine. She said it doesn`t take to long for them to come check you out and you can pet one.

I thought it was cute and it made me smile. x:

Also, that`s either a baby or a lady-seal. The full grown males are rather...elephanty.

Is she STUPID??
That creature could rip her face half off and I`m pretty sure medical help is probably 3200 km away.

It`s just a baby. He probably just wants attention. Like a puppy. But I don`t think I`d be the one to give it to him. She`s probably some type of professional. She`s too calm to be some random chick on a beach.

I`m sure you`re not supposed to, but I would have been squeezing and petting that thing to death. Bonus having penguins scooting all around at the same time.

@Meepmaker - It`s so cute, but I bet you`re right - they probaly do stink.
