Please Recycle (Your Seal Carcasses...)

Check out this beautiful time-lapse video from the BBC of a seal carcass being recycled under an ice sheet somewhere in the antarctic's McMurdo Sound.  By "recycled" I of course mean it's remains are being cleaned up by a bunch of 3-meter nemertean worms, various echinoderms and assorted little arthropods.
