In a rare wildlife encounter a giant octopus was seen battling a harbor seal at the Ogden Point breakwater in Victoria, Canada as the whole battle was witnessed by several families enjoying the beautiful nature at the Ogden point while the incredible sighting was captured by photographer Bob Ianson who was with his family at the time of the battle. Photographer Bob Ianson recalls that they were just crossing the walking out when he suddenly saw a seal popping out of water with something wrapped around it and quickly grabbed his camera to capture the creature, only to find out that their were actually two creatures, one was the harbor seal while the other one was a giant octopus wrapped around the seals body.
The giant pacific octopus wrapped its tentacles around the seal and took it underwater while the seal desperately tried to get a hold of it using it sharp teeth. Moments later the seal emerged victorious while holding it's priced possession in its mouth and looking at the onlookers displaying its hunt and power as it went back home to enjoy its delicious meal. The epic battle between the seal and the octopus lasted for about 10 minutes with three back to back underwater battles.
