Life In 360°: Get Up Close to Elephant Seals with USA Today

This is close enough.

It’s another Life In 360° without Kev so for today’s video VRFocus goes back to nature, as USA Today releases a short film looking at elephant seals.

The video tags along with two graduate student researchers studying the behavior of northern elephant seals at Año Nuevo State Park in California. Usually, visitors are only able to observe the elephant seal colony from a viewing area, but now viewers can get up close alongside the researchers.

These are massive animals that may look fat but can still be fast and agile, especially when in the water. The researchers are recording the calls of the male seals while they’re fighting, each one having its own unique sound that becomes their name.

Checkout the video below, and come back on Friday for the week’s final Life In 360°.
