A seal with two penguins

The Polar Biology journal captured an unusual incident involving seals and penguins on an unnamed remote island in the sub-Antarctic. Yes, the animals were caught having sex with each other – and it’s not the first time sexual predatory seals have been caught having their way with the cute little penguins. Back in 2006, “amorous seals” were spotted forcing themselves on the little birds. Normally seals catch and eat penguins but scientists say three out of four submissive little penguins are allowed to live after the “encounter”. Scientists are not sure why the seals are behaving as they are but surmise the perverted behavior is a habit learned from one another.
