Why visit Antarctica?! Reason No.4

The wildlife in Antarctica is abundant and precious. All of them are mesmerizing to me. From plankton to krill to albatross to penguins to seals to whales, they all live in a symbiotic relationship. I could just spend hours and days watching them go about their day.

One of the more entertaining animals in Antarctica are the seals. There are 35 species of seals in the world and only 6 of them live in Antarctica. The seal pups are adorable while full grown seals can be scary to be around.

You are highly imaginative and very creative. You need activities that channel and direct your imagination and creativity. Hearing and balance is also very important for a Seal totem. Learn to listen to your inner self and balance your life to it. Your dreams are very significant and vivid and constantly feed your creative imagination. It is important for you to stay in touch with your body’s natural rhythms – if you are hungry, eat; if you are tired, rest.
