Alpha Seal???!

What can I tell you? I find these weird things to be interesting. Scientists discovered a seal trying to have sex with a penguin, quite aggressively, I might add…

From Live Science:

“One summer morning, scientists observing elephant seals on a beach on Marion Island near the Antarctic spotted a young male Antarctic fur seal subduing a king penguin. “

“At first we thought it was hunting the penguin, but then it became clear that his intentions were rather more amorous,” de Bruyn recalled today via email.

In this article, scientists make the connection that aggression is closely linked to the mating urge in animals, and speculate it is the same in humans…. Read the full story…if these were humans it would be attempted rape for sure…

    Seems like the seal has some form of behavorial problem; possibly rooted in childhood trauma. Or perhaps wifee seal was simply not having that. No matter, he should be made accountable for his actions, or inactions, so to speak. I learn something new every day – a penguin is a bird – go figure! I never knew that! Thanks for sharing!
