1,000-lb leopard seal befriends photographer

An interview with wildlife photographer
Paul Nicklen about his most memorable wildlife encounter.

When he was photographing a story about leopard seals in Antarctica last year for National Geographic, he met this 12-ft-long, over 1,000-lb female leopard seal who adopted him and kept trying to teach him how to hunt penguins and over a period of several days kept bringing him penguins to eat.
