Ein Seehund haut einem Kajakfahrer einen Oktopus um die Ohren

Neulich in Neuseeland. Ein paar Kajakfahrer paddeln neben ein paar Seehunden. Einer der Seehunde haut einem der Kajakfahrer dann einen Oktopus um die Ohren. Und das ist womöglich die beste Headline des Tages. Egal, was da noch kommen mag.

We we’re kayaking in the winter NZ Kaikoura, beautiful day, seals were swimming and enjoying sun on the rocks.
Right around lunchtime, several seals started to swim around, we just thought they were refreshing their body, yet apparently they were seeking more of food.
One seal swims right next to us, having an octopus in his mouth, pops right up of the surface next to us, then tries to chew up the leg but ended up slapping our face!!

Seehund jagt Fisch zwischen Badegästen

So geschehen vor ein paar Tagen in Narooma, New South Wales, Australien. Und weil der Bursche nicht erst seit gestern den Fischen hinterher jagt, bekommt er den auch. Da stören ihn die verdutzten Badegäste nur wenig.

„A group of seals were hunting and catching fish at Narooma break wall also known as bar beach, swimming over the net and through people. The seals come in from Montague island and stay on the break wall. There were a lot of people there on school holidays and they enjoyed the show the seals put on clapping and cheering when the seals were successful.“

Ein geretteter Seehund kuschelt mit einem Seehund-Plüschtier

Im Okhotsk Tokkari Center, Hokkaido Japan, haben sie einen ohrlosen Seehund aufgenommen, um diesen aufzupäppeln. Dafür gaben sie jenem Seehund eine Plüschvariante seiner Art. Und irgendwie mochten die beiden sich wohl. So zwischenseehundisch.

“Tokkari” is the Ainu word for “azarashi” (earless seal), and as the center’s name would imply, this facility specializes in sheltering and conservation of earless seals. Visitors can observe the natural ecology of these graceful seals, and even take part in close-up interactive activities. All the while, the center serves as a conservation facility, treating earless seals that have been injured or caught in fishing nets, and returning them home to the ocean. The Okhotsk Tokkari Center holds and extremely important role as Japan’s one and only marine animal conservation facility.
