Picture of the week: Tracking leviathans

This southern elephant seal got a fancy headdress from researchers at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies in Hobard, Tasmania. The device attached to its head is a satellite tracking device, which gives researchers an insight into the sea mammals' daily lives in the Southern Ocean. One thing they learned: They dive to depths of almost 2.4 kilometers!
