Leopard Seal Face-Off

Paul Nicklen of National Geographic was in Antarctica photographing leopard seals, one of the deadliest creatures. He was in the freezing waters, face-to-face with the largest seal the guide had seen, when the seal opened wide to take a chunk out of Pauls head. However, in a bizarre twist of nature the seal did the completely unexpected, and as far as known today, unexperienced. Check out the video.
