Seals prank photographer by throwing party on his tent

By Cassie Alsup. CREATED Nov 26, 2013

South Georgia is an island between Argentina and Antarctica. Since there aren't hotels, it's a camping-only sort of place. That's why the crew filming "The Adventures of the Penguin King" decided to camp near the coast. But they didn't know they needed to watch out for the seals; they are total pranksters.

One day why filming away from his tent, one member of the crew got the message that he might want to go check on his home away from home. That's when he found a group of seals who looked like they were throwing a party on top of his tent. The dancing seals mocked him and crushed his belongings... but all in good fun.

Eventually, the film crew was able to scatter the seals (probably after the police were called), and the man began to cope with the fact that he was now "homeless." Moral of this story: always seal-proof your tent.
