No Thanks, I’ve Had Enough Penguins Today…

(via mental_floss)

In this two-minute video, National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen relates the story of a giant leopard seal who tried to teach him (Nicklen) how to hunt for penguins. While Nicklen was in Antarctica photographing the seal, she (the seal) kept bringing him penguins as food offerings, thinking that Nicklen was an incompetent predator who couldn’t find food for himself. Watch this short science video and be amazed.
