Animals

By Mikey Jones

These friendly seals certainly aren’t camera shy as they pose and even wink for a lucky photographer.

Dylan DeHaas, 29, who lives in Perth, Western Australia, captured the seals posing underwater.

He shared adorable images of the seals who appear to be smiling, winking, and even kissing a snorkeller.

Dylan said: “I have been swimming with the seals for five years now.

They recognise me when I get into the water which is on the north coast of Perth.

They are very curious animals but nature but also can be territorial, so I do not recommend swimming with them unless you are experienced.

They are super playful and look like puppy dogs but also have about 18x the bite force of a full-grown rottweiler, so they need
to be treated with respect.

The secret to getting awesome photos is to remain calm and to never chase them.”
