Returning from a fishing trip at sea, a king penguin squabbles with a fur seal as it makes its way back to its colony and chick. What the dispute is about we’ll never know but it’s a surprising and comical interaction. Although there are some documented cases of fur seals preying on penguins, their usual diet consists of krill, fish and squid, so this is not a predator/prey battle.
