*EDIT 1/19/2009* I added more contrast, more colour and I made it darker. By the way, In Vienna, sea lions have really wolderful exhibit, I absolutely loved it
I went there to see feeding of those amazing animals and it was great fun - by the way, do you see the poor trainer? he had only few fish left, so when he was walking on the land, sea lions came close to him to force him to give them the last fish
You can see only poor hand of the poor man who is hidden behind huge sea lions - it seems like he was asking for help, mu ha ha ha ha ha!
1. That poor sod getting squashed
2. That looks like one hell of a conga line!
But isn´t that dangerous, even if the trainer is an expert and knows what he is doing. Hungry wild animals should not be messed with...
Wow, looks like they would have no problem eating him if they wanted to, especially that first one. Good grief that thing is huge!
It was a male (the biggest creature XD ) and they all seemed very hungry
By the way, they are really pretty dangerous - once I asked keeper from ZOO Brno what would our fur seals do if I entered their exhibit. She smilled and said ,,well, they would probably drown you."
Ech? I was shocked, so she explained it. ,,They would want to play with you and take you to pool. And because they can hold their breath for long time, you would drown while their playing" XD
Come to think of it I do remember hearing about someone who got drowned by a leopard seal. I would imagine they are all very powerful animals.
But the one who killed a human was wild... and the killed was some scientist I think two of them died recently because of leopard seals
I myself might be going to Vienna zoo next autumn, so these pictures make me really look forward to the trip.
Oh, enjoy your trip to Vienna, this ZOO is really very nice
poor guy! XD
p.s.: They look familiar.
O.O o.....m......g........... pffffffffaahahahaha
that is sooo funneeeeeeeeh *wipes away tears* lol
