One of the best parts of visiting New Zealand’s south island is viewing the colonies of fur seals that line the rocky shores. At times, the seals can be found swimming in the water and awkwardly waddling across the rocks. More than likely, though, you will find the seals passed out in the sun.
It might not be such a bad thing if the seals want to sleep all the time. They aren’t always as cuddly when they are awake.
