NBC - For a few precious moments, the fate of one seal hung in the balance … as the seal itself balanced on the tip of a great white shark’s nose.
This time around, the seal snatched life from the jaws of death and escaped — just barely — and one lucky lensman was around to capture the scene.
Wildlife photographer David Jenkins documented the seal’s escape while he was on a shark cruise off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa in July. The seal was returning to Seal Island — yes, seriously — when the great white suddenly appeared and went for the creature, Jenkins told Caters News Agency.
Tell me this isn’t the most badass seal on the planet… you live to play another day.
