Video: Juan Fernandez Fur Seals

Courtesy of www.arkive.org, here's a video of some Juan Fernandez Fur Seals doing their thing.
The team are not visiting the Juan Fernandez islands for the filming of the new TV series. As Producer Tim Green explains, there's a relatively healthy population of about 10,000 animals now. While talking about the original trip with Douglas Adams he says...
when the little plane finally put the intrepid explorers down on the island, the fur seals were virtually lolling on the runway. We decided that a repetition of this event hardly constituted an adventure for our modern day animal hunters, so we sidelined the fur seal.
