Divided fraternally: found seals that sharing food

Scientists have found that at least one species of seals can share prey with each other. We are talking about sea leopards.

It was previously believed that this behavior is not characteristic of seals. As a rule, they hunt alone, and meet with brothers only during the mating season. However, in the course of observations, biologists noticed that sometimes sea leopards share food without showing to relatives of aggression. Three such cases were recorded. Researchers believe animals become friendlier when There is a lot of booty and there is no reason to fight for it. It is also possible that together it is easier for predators to gnaw large carcasses.
