Are you talking to me? I said….Are you talking to me? Northern elephant seal, Mirounga angustirostris

Sometime in late March, “Nibbles” –a 2,500 lb. elephant seal living on the Sonoma Coast in Northern California– snapped. In the ensuing month, the adolescent seal has bitten a surfer and a pet pit bull, attacked a kayaker and killed a number of harbor seals (12 according to a park ranger), apparently crushing the skulls of the females and disemboweling the males. Officials have gone public with a warning, speaking out to the press and posting signs all around the mouth of the Russian River: don’t swim, wade, or even get near the water, and if you see Nibbles basking in the sun on the sand don’t try to tickle him!

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, witnesses say that Nibbles waits below the surface of the water and “lunges at its victims like a crocodile.”

Male elephant seals are known for being aggressive, but Nibbles is taking it a little far. Luckily Congress passed a bill requiring a 90 day waiting period for elephant seals to purchase assault weapons or it might have been even more serious.

    Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    Township Meeting Established For Monday, Regardless of Road Excursion Reduced Pottsgrove commissioners canceled their previous manifeste session on April 19. They don’t seem to be possible to skip two inside of a row, even if the board president is on an “international tour.”
