There are few creatures that have been attacked by sharks and yet lived to tell the tale. But this seal over here not only did just that but also managed to give it back to the big fish.

The incident was caught on camera by the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries and the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy. The video clip shows a seal narrowly escaping an attack by a white shark and even slapping it in self-defence, when it jumped in mid-air to catch its prey. The footage was filmed just 30 feet from the shore in Cape Cod situated in the United States.

 

One of the crew members also remarked that they had never seen a shark leap out of the water like that before, reports the Metro.
