Polaris from the research station “Academician Vernadskyi” made public incredible photos of sea leopards, which are “nuddling” in the crisis.
The photos were taken in the “Vernadskyi” area at different times during more than one and a half years of work of the biologist of the 27th and 28th UAE Sergey Glotov in the Antarctic.
The polar scientists note that Glotov’s photos were published in continuation of their post about female sea leopards, one of the main predators of the Antarctic, which hunt penguins and seals, and mostly their cubs.

It will be recalled that earlier polar explorers showed how a sea leopard hunts a penguin.
