Wild_Life with @bertiegregory // In an incredible rare predatory event, an Antarctic fur seal hunts macaroni penguins on land on the Island of South Georgia in the South Atlantic Ocean. This was hard to watch but I felt it was an important part of the macaroni penguins’ life story. Giant waves, razor sharp rocks, mountain climbs and these seals (usually hunting the penguin in the water) are just a handful of the challenges these penguins must overcome on a daily basis. Only the toughest individuals survive to pass on their genes to the next generation. Brutal as this encounter was, there was an unexpected twist, watch this week’s episode of Wild_Life: Resurrection Island to find out what happened. // Check out the new season of Wild_Life at natgeo.com/wildlife.
