What this man thought was a cute seal turned out to be a slap in the face… with an octopus.
This hilarious moment was caught on this kayaker's GoPro.
The video shows the seal coming out of the water, octopus in mouth, slinging the octopus toward the unsuspecting kayaker. The seal then slips back into the water.
Taiyo Masuda filmed the action while in New Zealand to celebrate GoPro's launch of the new HERO7 model.
"Right around lunchtime, several seals start to swim around, we just thought they were refreshing their bodies…apparently they were looking for food," Masuda said. "One seal swims right next to us with an octopus in its mouth, pops right up off the surface next to us, then tries to chew up the leg but ended up slapping out face!"
