Seals in Kaikoura (and llamas and cats too)

Today I saw some more seals up close. Since they weren’t nervous or startled at all, and one was even lying on the pedestrian walkway where he napped, I took some pretty nice close up pictures. My camera only has a 3.6 zoom, which is pretty low, so I am always happy when animals are relaxed and let me come close. Pics are under the cut.

I really love seals, they look so cute and fluffy and they can swim so fast.

Most of them were very relaxed, but if you come to close for their comfort they will show you by showing their teeth and growling at you. Their bites are highly infectious, so you have to be careful while approaching.
