“Crabeater seals (Lobodon carcinophagus) are one of the most curious animals [I've been] fortunate to work with,” writes Mariusz Potocki, a member of our Your Shot community. “When the gulf waters freeze over during the Antarctic winter, they hunt for the krill that live beneath the ice surface. These curious and happy seals gather around airholes, which they use to take in air after hunting or playing underwater. Scuba diving in a place like that is a wonderful and exciting adventure.”
