Animals that have attacked me in the Antarctic:
- Skua – Several attacks, all unsuccessful. One attack did result in a quick dive to the ground on New Island.
- Caracaras – Over thirty attacks, one successful. Dove to the ground on multiple occasions, cracked across the skull on a high-speed dive during the lone successful attack.
- Fur seal – Multiple growls and half-hearted attacks, one serious charge, thwarted with the cunning use of a tripod.
This trip is perfect material for one of those Fox reality TV specials.
