Photographer Gets Too Close To Predator, Then Something Amazing Happens…

It’s always a great day when a massive leopard seal decides not to eat you whole. It’s an even weirder day when that same leopard seal decides to feed you a fresh penguin. In this video, National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen was on assignment in Antarctica to capture leopard seals in the wild when he was approached by a massive female with jaws twice as big as a grizzly bear. What happened next is nothing short of epic.
