An hour north of San Luis Obispo on the California coast is Las Piedras Blancas, a stretch of beach that has been taken over by Elephant Seals. Years ago, one could walk on the beach in the middle of the seals. While this was a fantastic opportunity to get VERY close to these massive creatures, it did create the potential for disaster. While a quarter the size of the bulls, even the females can weigh up to 1,300lbs (600kg), and they can all move surprisingly fast.
