Seal, Octopus, Kayaker Make for Riveting Footage

'He thrashed it in mid fight and my face happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time'.

In the footage, we hear adrenaline-fuelled hollering right after the slap, with Mulinder repeatedly exclaiming "There's an octopus on my boat!" Using their mouth, seals will grab and throw octopuses by their tentacles, ripping them off with the force of the throw. Mr Masuda told AFP.

Kyle told i: "We were kayaking in the winter NZ Kaikoura, lovely day, seals were swimming and enjoying sun on the rocks". Meanwhile, the seal chose to call it quits and swam off to find a different meal.

"Right around lunchtime, several seals started to swim around, we just thought they were refreshing their body, yet apparently they were seeking food", Mr Masuda told Reuters.

Mulinder said he was out in the ocean with a group of other paddlers and was testing out his GoPro camera when he saw a large male seal fighting with an octopus. He was recognized after posting the video on social media: "My Uber driver who just brought us here just goes 'you're the guy, you're the octopus guy'". She explained that it was just trying to get a tasty meal out of the octopus, one of its favorite animals to eat.
