There are certain animals we’re used to seeing scrapping and devouring each other. Just like cats and dogs! But the story we’ve got for you here sees two creatures tussling it out that you’d never expect… A seal and an octopus! Which creature do you think will win this epic bout?!
Amateur photographer Bob Ianson, saw the duo taking each other at Ogden Point, which is in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. A battle between a harbor seal and a giant octopus is making waves on the Internet the moment he captured the strange sight right on his camera.
Ianson said that he was out for a walk with his family on the Ogden Point breakwater in Victoria, Canada, when he saw the two creatures battling one another on Monday. He immediately pulled out his camera.
We were walking back, and up popped what at first looked like two seals but once they got up to the surface I realized it was one seal with something in its mouth — which turned out to be an octopus. 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.”
With an estimate of approximately 4 and 1/2 feet long, the seal was tangled with a Giant Octopus for about 10 minutes. Until the octopus decided to untangle and give up!
While the photos Ianson captured are astounding, experts say seals eating octopuses is actually a common occurrence.
