Knot Me... maybe

Happy Teeth the Leopard Seal

Recommended Posts

What is it with the misogyny theme?

You see misogyny in that? Really??? 

Open a window, let some fresh air in.

 

I saw a huge school of grey mullet in Westhaven on Monday, around piers L and M.

Over the north corner there are motherload as well. Not so many of the real big ones though, maybe that's why Happy Teeth is looking so fat :D

 

Not to sure I'd be scrubbing my bottom at the moment. Thrashing around in a wetsuit could look like a male seal doing some mating thing........... I very much don't like the idea of where that could lead to.

Be good for business for the floating dock... I know of several people who usually swim on their boats to clean them who aren't seeming so keen at the moment.

Diveworx aren't cleaning any boats in the water at Westhaven.

I'm interested in the idea of "stay 20m away" that they recommend.

 

That could rip your nightie if she's basking on your pier, between the ramp and the boat. "Can't go racing tonight lads, let's retire early to the bar". "Sorry about the weekend cruise that I invited you on, looks like we're sleeping in the car."

Happened to is in Florida with a alligator. Had to wait a few hours till it decided to move on

Because of seal?

Its not an ordinary seal. Leopard Seals have killed people, They are an apex predator. I've been diving with seals on quite a few occasions, but I would not intentionally dive near a leopard seal. 

If you are interested, look up leopard seals on google, there are quite a few cases of attacks and a few deaths. Then consider that most of these animals live far away from humans...

Yep, sorry, got all that, was just surprised that the leopard seal was stopping divers cleaning boats (and earning money).

 

At what point does it get 'relocated'?

 

It was swimming under voom a few months ago, just as i was about to jump in. I didnt get in....

when people start complaining

 

we'll go through a public breast beating period

 

people talking heath + safety

 

there'll be counter arguments that orca are also here

 

but it will be pointed out that the snorkeller that was killed shows that despite minimal human interaction leopards are recent killers and probably 10x? more dangerous than killers

 

it should be down south, it should have recovered sufficient condition to be returned safely by rnzaf herc to southland

 

if gareth morgan will fund it etc etc etc

 

as long as cats get registered with bell collars

 

etc etc etc
