Photo of the Day 4.21.10

Your body language sends a million signals. Happy, sad, mad, afraid, overjoyed, or in the case of this seal, incredibly proud. Roymartin grabbed this shot of a posing seal at Sea World in San Diego, Calif., and just looking at it makes me want to sit up straighter and ring a bell for my butler.

Marine biologists at NOVA have confirmed that seals are among some of the smartest mammals in the sea. This photo not only makes a statement, but shows the true intelligence of this beautiful animal by its stature and body language.
