Have you ever seen a wrestling between two marine creatures? You must be pondering how engrossing it would be to see them with your own eyes. This story will lead you to the amazing fight between seal and the octopus. The photographer and a small business owner, Bob Lanson was out for a walk with his wife, daughter and grandson by Ogden Point Breakwater in Victoria, Canada, and had his camera at the ready when he noticed the seal, enfolded in the tentacles of the octopus. "It was unbelievable," Lanson said. "That seal is probably, I don't know, four-and-a-half feet long? So that octopus is a pretty big octopus." To a surprising fact, the giant pacific octopus usually grows to about 15 kilograms, and can be much larger.

The fight was just a meter or two offshore which drew a crowd of several dozen of people, as told by Lanson. "It was almost like the seal was bringing the octopus up the surface to show off what he had," he said.

The photos are infrequent, but the fight isn't, according to the Vancouver Aquarium. "Octopus is a regular part of the harbour seal's diet," said aquarium research biologist Chad Nordstrom. "Actually capturing it on film is the rare thing." He further told that they have only one photograph of the fight between these two critters, which was taken by a driver few years ago.
