Killer whale catapults sea lion 20 feet into the air!
And you thought sharks were the only marine predators to be worried about.
Filmed last week while on a fishing trip up near Ketchikan, Alaska, this footage documents a sea lion hiding under a fishing boat because he was being stalked by a killer whale. Unfortunately for the sea lion when the boat decides to leave the whale pounces on the opportunity, somehow tossing the fellow marine mammal 20 feet into the air! And you thought sharks were the only marine predators to be worrying about.
On a similar note, this recent footage of a 4-ft shark being eaten by a giant grouper fish in one gulp catches this group of fishermen off-guard.
