That’s Not Wally

I guess I see how a tubby leopard seal might be mistaken for a tubby polar bear. Remember, those leopard seals are pretty sluggish on land/snow/ice (you’ll notice the joke in the Happy Feet movie where the little adelie’s taunt the leopard seal). So I suggest that he run too.

If you remember that National Geographic video I posted you’ll see that sometimes the leopard seal will get lucky on land, but usually just when he waits for penguins to come shooting up out of the water.

Little is actually known about leopard seals. I had no idea, but they have actually been kept in captivity over the years in New Zealand and Australia (apparently injured animals that were rescued). They pretty much stay around the Antarctic waters but will travel up to the the waters “down under”. Currently the Taronga Zoo in Sydney has a leopard seal, it even does tricks. I found this video here that I’m assuming is from the Taronga Zoo (the posted user is in Australia). You can tell that’s a leopard seal by the long body and massive skull, look at him go!

The chicks are growing up so fast, they got their adult markings already, they just look like miniature versions of their parents now.

    Yay! First Post! Maybe there should be a seperate catagory for comics featuring Lepord seals, seeing how they seem to be in alot of comics.

  • Ishmael

    Why is he all was there to ruining osborne fun?:(

  • Phizlo

    I feel pretty bad for Osborne. :( Getting scared from a snowman, getting hit by a snowman’s head, and now mistaking a leopard seal as Wally so he could get revenge. :( Oh, well this makes the comic more funny. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Phizlo

    Oh, yeah I forgot. :) I really liked the part in Happy Feet when the leopard seal said to the Amigos “I take you with ketchup” and the Amigos cried, “Yeah, but first you have to CATCH UP!!” HAHAHAHAHA :) Very funny. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • SportyBlonde!

  • Emy the polar bear freak!!!!!!

    If polar bear hunting continues polar bears will become instinct by the end of 2007.

    Awesome comic Tyler!

  • BriGuy

    Good one. I don’t get why Osborne doesn’t run away with Wally though.

  • Hannah

    hey people
    whats up with all the kvgduvboufvg;dozfuvb;uvgzbd;lig?
    this comic reminds of the seal cage one.
    me and sarah were just talking today about that part in Happy Feet.
    like when he says I know where you live
    and one of the adelies says Yeah, its called land, lordface!
    heres a penguin fact for today:

    Penguins got their name from the great auk, which early explorers thought was a penguin. the name, pengwyn means white head.

  • penguin Luvr 20 (kayla)

    this is your daily obvious penguin fact:::::::::penguins live only in the south pole

  • penguin Luvr 20 (kayla)

    great comic tyler! i love it!!!!!poor osbourne… :mrgreen:

  • Phizlo

    Penguins don’t only in the South Pole!!! Some penguins live in New Zealand, Argentina, South Africa, or even the Galapagos Islands!!! Not all live at Antarctica. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Roi

    Yeah. A very tiny few live right on the equator and go north of it. Not all penguins live in arctic regions.

    This makes me think of those times where you continuously shout out someone’s name when you see someone with the same look at first glance. Then, they turn around and they’re definitely not the person you thought they were.
    I’d also be mad if someone threw a snowball at me while I was napping.

  • Emperor Penguin

    Hahahaha I love that part!:razz:

    Sorry I can’t leave a fact today. I leave one on the next comic. My computer is really slow. I’m afraid to post. And I’m going to Las Vagas. Bye :(

  • Penguin Guru

    So I guess lepord seals dom’t like being woken up with a stinging cold snowball to the head, huh? I guess it wouldn’t be enjoyable.

  • New Guy

    Roi, not a single penguin lives in the arctic, u probably mean antartic regions.

    Leapord seal gets a snack now! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Sarah da penguin lver

    yeah this is hilarious!!!! anyway, when me and Hannah were talking about the leopard seal scene at school, instead of “come here sausage, i take you with ketchup”, i said “come here ketchup, i take you with sausage”! Hannah and i both started to crack up while trying to be quiet enough so as not to attract quite sooo much attention to ourselves….that never works so well….. anyways since Hannah mentioned it i thought that i would tell the really funny story!!! sorry for taking up space…..see you l8r!

  • penguin Luvr 20 (kayla)
