Have they had lessons from seal? Photographer snaps singing seals
These hilarious photographs show a group of seals practicing their SINGING skills.
The joyful elephant seals, with their heads tilted back and mouths wide open, appear to be impersonating the legendary operatic trio of the Three Tenors.
Wildlife photographer Roie Galitz shot the seals on South Georgia Island earlier this year.
Having initially snapped the animals yawning and growling, when he revisited his collection, Roie found the shots extremely amusing.
He said: “I spent a couple of hours near the elephant seals as I’ve been waiting for some unique and interesting behaviour.
“Every once in a while one of them got up and yawned or pushed his friends away, and that is the kind of interaction I was waiting for.
“When I saw the images, I really laughed.
“These seals are so sweet and hilarious.”
Male elephant seals are known for making extremely loud roaring noises, especially during mating season.
Some have measured more than six meters in length and weighed more than 8,000 pounds.
Roie added: “As a wildlife photographer with a clear agenda to represent the world’s most vulnerable creatures, I did look forward to photographing the southern elephant seal.
“It’s my goal to spread the word and let people know about these majestic animals.”
