Hairy Armadillos on Peninsula Valdez

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!

We just read the sign! :(

Watch this amazing YouTube video to see what we missed More
