The T49A’s and T123’s Feast on a Sea Lion! -9/4/16

UGLY NON-SHARP PHOTO BUT RAINBOW.

The T49A’s and T123’s were so awesome today!! T123A “Stanley,” a robust 16 year old male, was lunging out of the water during a Sea Lion hunt he and his mother and little sister were engaged in (ps: the sea lion lost)

It makes me wonder, when they apparently take their time consuming a carcass the size of a sea lion, what exactly is going on? Is it a mysterious ritualistic behaviour? Or does it really just take them that long to dismantle the whole thing?

Watching T49A1 separate from the rest of them, just circling and doing what ever he was doing with his piece of the kill, was fascinating

To say this youngster, T49A4 and its older brother T49A3 were being adorable together would be an understatement. They were incredible, hustling and bustling around together, breaching spastically and thrashing their tails.
