An unusual video showing a sea lion slapping a man with an octopus in New Zealand waters has become viral. The scene is hardly believable and yet it did take place
A kayaker was quietly kayaking last weekend with friends off Kaikoura, New Zealand, when a sea lion suddenly slapped him … with an octopus.
The animal emerged from the water and blasted the kayaker to the surprise, In the wrong place, at the wrong time. The latter was in fact not directly targeted by the slap. He simply found himself in the middle of a fight between the male sea lion and the octopus, that the first held in his mouth and wanted to eat.
