Description

In this panorama of the beach at St Andrews Bay, South Georgia you can see all the Elephant Seals occupying their breeding areas on the beach. Each male Elephant Seal will defend his harem of dozens of females, in order to mate with them, weighing several tonnes their battles can be incredibly violent and make the ground shake! All the time thousands of King Penguins are trying to get through to their chicks. This is where the BBC filmed part of their series Frozen Planet.
