Object name Petrified Seal
Caption In Antarctica’s extreme arid and cold environment, nothing rots — it dries up and petrifies. This seal was killed and left here by one of the early expeditions around 100 years ago. In other places around the continent mummified seal carcasses can be found which are thousands of years old.
