South Polar Skua

The animal of the day is the South Polar Skua. (Did you know: These guys are straight up hoods if you are looking for a gangsta bird in the Subantartic islands. These huge gulls terrorize seabird and penguin colonies.

At the end of this clip, a skua starts eating a puffin, right in front of all his boys. Damn.

The penguins? They eat their babies. Whole. The other flying sea birds? Skua’s harass them while they’re flying, forcing them to vomit, and then catch the vomit mid air. yup.
