13th March 2013. Today I went in our car to see some Orcas and Elephant seals on the Peninsular Valdez in Argentina but we didn’t see any!
Just a board to tell us about them! The Orcas are also called Killer Whales but are actually members of the dolphin family. They are also called killer whales but they haven’t killed humans except when they are captive. They are the worlds largest predator of warm blooded animals – they hunt seals and penguins and we could have seen this on the peninsular. They launch themselves right onto the beach to catch them!
Watch this amazing YouTube video to see what we missed:
But seeing hairy armadillos made up for it , as well as emus, guanacos – which are related to camels, penguins and cute little rodents!
We saw the first armadillo near the car in the car park and it didn’t seem scared of us, snuffling around!
When we saw the second one, I made this video! Hope you like it!
