Oh, how cute! It's great when the wild life feel comfortable enough to interact with the humans. They know who is a danger and who isn't. They take these same risks out in the wild world too and adjust perfectly fine. I tend to respect that and not try to pet them or anything in the process. They want their critical space too. Congratulations. ")

This seal had been watching everything going on with interest and suddenly put its head on the counter. There were other seals present and none seemed to have an interest in the fish even though they had easy access to them. I saw none actucally eating any of the fish or being feed which is against park regulations

I agree Juan, it is sad to see an animal begging for food instead of going to hunt for itself.

Nice picture, but I have visited galapagos and it is really sad what is happening with the abuse of the fishing industry, this picture shows this reality.
