    Seals enjoying a fish lunch.

  • Description

    "Mrs Seal and her sisters and brothers are the Zoo's finest catchers - they seldom miss when the catch is fish."

    M/S of seals in an enclosure (possibly Regent's Park zoo). Keeper throws them some fish. Various shots of the seals being fed. "No animal or fish has more grace, too, when the slow-motion camera "does its stuff."

    Slow motion footage of seal jumping off the terrace into the pool after a fish. A crowd of onlookers watch the show. "When Mrs Seal really goes all out, she looks like a miniature speedboat." Real time and slow motion footage of the seals swimming.
