Seal Slaps Kayaker in the Face With an Octopus

A bizarre encounter involving a seal, an octopus and a man has been caught on camera. A kayaker inadvertently got a face full of tentacles while coming between a seal and its lunch in waters off New Zealand. Kaikoura on New Zealand’s South Island has a large population of fur seals. The octopus tried to escape the seal by latching onto the bottom of a kayak but it is not know how successful that strategy was in the long-run. Or maybe the seal is saying “You have offended my honor, sir!” /slap, “At dawn, we shall duel with archer fish!”
