A visitor to Coila Beach over the weekend

Though not uncommon with one or two sightings a year visitors to Coila Beach, part of Eurobodalla National Park, enjoyed the presence of a southern visitor, a leopard seal. The leopard seal, also referred to as the sea leopard, is the second largest species of seal in the Antarctic. Its only natural predator is the killer whale. It feeds on a wide range of prey including cephalopods, other pinnipeds, krill, birds and fish. Wiki

Though this one seemed pretty cruisey and in First day of Spring holiday mode he/she was in a National Park and you are obligued to keep well clear
