Species Battle: Seal vs Octopus
A fight between a harbour seal and a Pacific octopus drew a crowd of onlookers to Ogden Point in Victoria, Canada this week
Canadian photographer Bob Ianson was lucky enough to capture the spectacle on camera. 'The seal came up with this thing in its mouth, and it was almost as if he looked me in the eye, and presented it to me and said, 'Look what I have!' He was looking right at me,' he told the Huffington Post.
While octopus play an important part in the diet of seals and sea lions, the hunt has rarely been filmed.
