Fur seals are generally nasty, aggressive creatures that growl and bark at you if you so much as look in their direction. They also smell horrendous – a sort of fishy sewage odour. All in all, they’re not the most loveable animals, but this one did pose quite nicely so I thought I’d better get a photo. True to form, as soon as I’d taken the shot he bared his teeth and started chasing me.
