Watch their (extremely brief) romance blossom on the beach of Gold Harbor, South Georgia, off the southern tip of South America.

A charming video of what appears to be a seal wooing a pretty lady on the beaches of Gold Harbor, South Georgia.

Gold Harbor, South Georgia, is located off the southern tip of South America, in the sub-Arctic. It is a small bay five miles S-SW of Cape Charlotte, with Bertrab Glacier at its head, along the east end of Georgia . The west end of the beach where a glacial stream flows is a breeding ground for various types of penguins and large seals. It is not a frequent destination for tourists.

There are a few things to consider as you watch the video. First, the female romantic lead (a/k/a “brave tourist”) is completely unfazed by the seal – he’s trying to kiss her, and she doesn’t flinch. That’s surprising, because this seal – an Elephant seal – likely weighs over a ton. Males can weigh up to 6,000 lbs.

Second, what is it about this woman that the seal is so enamored of? It might be her soul or it’s that cute red jacket.?

    Kind of scary but exciting at the same time. I mean, that is a wild animal and if it decided for any reason to take her face off, it could. But it didn't and what a nice film.
