Real life kayaking in New Zealand: a seal may swim up to you and hit you with an octopus. The best part about it is that it was caught on camera.
In all fairness to the seal, it was trying to eat the octopus and in the process was trying to free itself from its tentacle. In case you’re wondering, seals eat octopuses.
The seal that was filmed is a New Zealand fur seal, Laura Boren, marine science advisor for the New Zealand Department of Conservation, told The Verge. A large population lives off the coast of Kaikōura on the South Island, Boren explained.
