    Uhoh! I reviewed another photo around this time and tagged the seal as a skua. Back to the FAQ and tutorial for me. 😦

    @ggm02 No need to worry about any mistakes. Each subject is classified by multiple volunteers and I'm pretty sure someone will mark it correctly 😉

    Same here @coldcounter , thought it might be too far from the water for it to be a seal. But now I can only see a seal, not a skua! 😐

    Top of the rounded mass? Yes, that's one of the skuas that hangs out there-compare it to the penguin for size.

    (Don't worry about 'too far from the water' for seals- we have such a small view it's hard to know distance.)

    Good point about using the size of the penguins for comparison. So it's a skua unless we've discovered a new species of micro-seal?! 😄

    Hhmmm I like the sound of a micro seal... Like a pygmy possum! I you want to see something google fairy pygmy armadillo!!!

    'fairy pygmy armadillo' that is the most totally weird critter I've ever seen. Never heard of it before - but I'll never forget it now! 😮

    I hadn't either is thought it was an April fool's day joke when I was told about it... had to eat my words when I read up about it 😄
