Gentoo Meal

There was a bit of excitement here at Palmer today, when a hungry leopard seal attacked a small group of Gentoo penguins just outside of my office. A couple of them made it out of the water intact, and are spending the night here on land. I can't blame them for staying high and dry after witnessing the carnage that a hungry lep can inflict upon a penguin. Reminds me of how cats like to play with mice.
