Massive Seal Escapes Death By Leaping Out Of The Water As A Great White Shark Tries To Snatch It Mid-Flight


Dr. Greg Skomal of the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries captured this intense moment as a gigantic, fatty seal leaped eight feet out of the Cape Cod waters to avoid getting obliterated by a Great White Shark.

Judging by the seals leaping technique, it looks like this isn’t its first rodeo.

Judges?

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
