Recently, the seals that lived on Hawaii island were found to be drilled into the nostrils by the sea eels. Luckily, they were assisted by emergency rescue team. But why is this super weird things happening?
According to the rescue team’s assumption, seals are used to digging for food under rocks, coral reefs and sandstones, they might accidentally dig into the sea eels and let the sea eels slip into their nostrils. Or maybe the sea eel is swallowed by the seals and the eel tries to escape from seal’s nostril.
And surprisingly, things like this isn’t a news in Hawaii! In the past few years, there have been frequent occurrences, and at least three to four cases have been publicly reported by the local media.
Seal is one of the animals that are full of curiosities. In addition to sea eels, there have been some dangerous incidents in which baby seal held a knif in his mouth.
The Hawaiian animal protection team was freaked out by the naughty baby seal. Fearing that he would eat the knife. They took a lot of effort to take the knife away from the seal.
Tourists can’t get rid of the responsibility for this kind incidents. All in all, “Pick up your own trash!” Don’t destroy the marine ecology and harm the animals because of your laziness and bad habits.
