Leopard seal

Postby Will Parsons » Wed Mar 15, 2017 8:49 am

This season since the 23rd of October we have had a resident Leopard seal and this mammal was last seen yesterday in the shallow waters of the Opaoa river due east of Blenheim near the Wairau lagoon. It's quite intimidating sight particularly when less than 5 metres away but has never shown aggressive behavior.
