In the 2 hours I spent sitting with this monk seal he raised his head at EVERY single adult who got to close to him.. he would give a snort or a full on BARK and it was an impressive sight. Big men would JUMP at the sound..
.....Then i watched as this little boy and his father stood in front of the monk seal. This little boy was delightful. He would bend his little body over and "RROOOAARRRR"
at the monk seal, he would point and laugh and holler "SEAL SEAL"...
NOT ONCE did this seal lift his head.. in fact he never even opened his eyes!!
I wonder what the understanding is between children and animals? Im pretty sure i had the answer when i was a child, problem is the older i got the dumber i became!
