This tickles my soul

This is what happened when a photographer came
with one of Antarctica' s
most vicious predators.
I slipped into the water, terrified of what might
happen, and I swam up to this leopard seal...
My legs were shaking, I had dry mouth...

She took my
But then the most amazing. thing happened...
She went off and got me a live penguin, and she
came up and started to feed me a penguin.
She kept letting these live penguins go and the penguin
would shoot past Leland she' d look disgusted as she' d
go by me. She did this over and over...
And then I think she realized t' % t‘ Ilvl: s this‘ l' _ =.%
predator in her ocean, probably going to
death and I think she became quite panicked...
She started to bring me weak penguins, then dead
penguins, then she showed me how to eat penguins.
She would offer me partially consumed penguins.
She started to take penguins and actually push them
into my camera. I think she thought the camera was
my mouth, which is every photographer' s dream.
This went on for four days.
So, here I Carrie to Antarctica, to photograph this
potentially vicious animal, to have this predator, this
top predator in Antarctica, take core of me, and
nurture me, and feed me for four days straight.
It was the most incredible experience live er

How long is it possible for somebody to stay submerged in antarctic temperature waters?

Without a suit, about a minute then you're dead.
With a fully insulated wet suit, you have around 15-20 minutes, depending how resilient you are to the cold.

Just imagine what's going on through her head at the time.

"What's that? Is it dangerous"
"What's it doing? It's not moving. Is it okay?"
"Maybe it needs food, I'll go get some. Here you go."
"DOOD WTF? here. take the- Take the ******* food! You need to eat! Here! I'm giving yo- I'm giving you a ******* penguin so you can live! Are you retarded? I'm just trying to help you. I need the good karma points. I eat adorable swimming birds for crying out loud. Take th- TAKE THE ******* PENGUIN! I DON'T WANT YOU TO DIE!"

The incredible persistence here is what really clenches it for me. She's trying so hard to save an animal despite not even knowing what it is. Do you think this is an attempt to make friends? Maybe learn about the new animals that have been swimming the waters? It just seems like such a human thing to do.

I sorta feel bad for it. It tried so damn hard to feed the guy and he never ate it so the seal's efforts went to waste

I feel bad because the photographer confused and probably frustrated the seal while this was happening.

"here eat dis, fellow seal"
(does nothing)
"come on eat it"
(does nothing)
"If you don't eat it you'll die"
(does nothing)
(does nothing)
