The only good thing in the world today is that I learned about "banana pose" which is just something seals do when they feel safe and content.
Just happy seal things.


Lovely photos. Are they yours?

The usual explanation I have seen for the "banana pose" is thermoregulation. Either because it helps with seal circulation or because the head and tail have less fat than the central part of the body. However, I've not read a scientific proof of the thermoregulation theory.
