Yelling at each other online is a beloved human tradition. Other animals like to shout at each other too, they just don’t have the luxury of a screen separating them. But of all the petty creatures in the animal kingdom, it turns out elephant seals might be most like humans when it comes to talking s***.
In general, elephant seal calls sound like a broken car. But while they might not be the most elegant musicians, elephant seals need to understand each others’ calls so that they don’t die.

Interesting about the alpha. I had thought it was always about the physical shell they possess. Even in human terms, if you are blessed with physical symmetry and the desirable traits, confidence will soon follow. Those physical traits and the confidence it inspires are the 'aura' of attractiveness. I think people can also attain that type of mindset latter in life when they simply stop giving a #*&$ what others think of them.
