The Phillie Phanatic Goes Home to the Galpagos Islands

Many of the Phillies players use their offseason time as a chance to go home and visit their families. Chooch has been back in Panama. Shane has been in both Hawaii and Las Vegas. The Phanatic is no different.

The Phanatic is no different.

The Phillie Phanatic used part of his offseason break from baseball to journey back to his homeland, the Galapagos Islands, aboard the National Geographic Endeavour. He made friends with the local animals there such as this ridiculously cute sea lion pup (See also: tortoise) and also went to visit a local school there.

Some may think it’s not easy being the Phanatic. You know, being the only one of your species besides your mother to live in the United States and all. But I don’t feel so bad for him after checking out the photo gallery of his Galapagos Adventures over at Phillies.com.
