• Short Summary

    Roland the gigantic elephant seal is fed in his pool at Berlin Zoo.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Roland - of the Berlin Zoo." (new title) "One of the world's largest sea elephants, Roland, consumes exactly 150 lbs of fish per day. He is the leader of the 'Eat more Fish' Brigade."

    Berlin, Germany.

    Various shots show an enormous elephant seal called Roland, coming out of his pen and into his pool at Berlin Zoo. His keeper says "Good morning" to him and feeds him several fish. Roland then lumbers out of the water and sits beside the pool, putting his head up and back to take fish gently from the keepers hand - Roland must be about 12 ft long! Roland twitches his nose, and opens his mouth to make a growling noise.
