Thanks Lillian and John, I'm very pleased you like it. It's the first time I have seen a seal's teeth. Never knew they were that colour!

Thanks Geoff. I live in Dartmouth and visit Living Coasts whenever I can. I have not yet got a photo of a penguin that I'm particularly happy with but I keep on trying!
