An NZ fur seal's skull (next to the dead boby of a blue penguin), found at Kaikoura peninsula scenic reserve, South Island NZ.
They're sitting quietly (especially if we're talking about females & babies), and you don't realize what big teeth they have!It's a sad find, to spot a skull/remains of an animal, but I guess it's normal too, as long as it died from natural reasons...
Wow, what a cool find! I think seals and sea lions have the most incredible skulls! They look so powerful and those sharp teeth look so ominous! Thank you for adding this great spotting to the Osteology mission!
Lat: -42.43, Long: 173.71
