Weddel seals

The eerie underwater whistles, trills and chirps of Weddell seals filled my ears while I was diving in the Antarctic. These are the only seals that can live in deep Antarctica all year round. When the sea freezes over, they use their strong, angled incisors to carve out breathing holes. The adults in McMurdo Sound were not bothered by my presence, though they wouldn't allow me to swim too close.

This pup, though, was very curious. It grabbed hold of my mask and camera while its mother, floating beneath their breathing hole, kept a watchful eye on us.
