You can’t help but adore a remarkable animal encounter that defies all expectations. Seals and whales are two species of marine mammals that are commonly found in many ocean environments around the world.
Seals are much smaller than whales and have more of your typical land mammal type of body, allowing them to move in both the water and on land.
Seals are also known for their thick fur and blubber, which helps them to maintain their body heat in cold ocean environments. Seals feed on a variety of prey, including fish, squid, and crustaceans.
Whales, on the other hand, are much larger than seals, with some species growing up to 100 feet in length. Whales feed on a variety of prey, including krill, plankton, and schooling fish.
Seals and whales are both found in the ocean they have different behaviors and lifestyles. Seals are typically solitary animals that live in groups but really only interact to breed. Whale are social animals that live in family groups and communicate with each other using a variety of vocalizations.
Though, they can be in the same area sometimes.
This Mexican whale watching trip turned out to be extra good as the group watched a whale and a seal play around.
One part of the video shows the seal climbing right onto the whale. Moments later the whale breaches and launches the seal as in plunges back into the ocean.
Humpback Whale Rise Up & Smash Fishing Boat
This is mortifying…
Straight up nightmare fuel.
Earlier this week, video footage went viral of a massive humpback whale leaping from the water, and hitting the bow of a boat off the coast of Plymouth, Massachusetts.
Luckily, there were no injuries sustained, which is a miracle considering those bad boys weigh between 55,000 to 66,000 pounds. Like, do you year that? The thing is bigger and heavier than a damn school bus.
The boat however, was… pretty destroyed.
Filmed from a safe distance, it’s no surprise that the wild video went viral, just watching this majestic beast come up from the water out of nowhere, and bodyslam the boat… it’s insane.
However, this alternate angle will have you breaking out in cold sweats.
One of the passengers on the boat happened to be filming when the humpback leapt from the water.
You can see the passengers are just having a calm, relaxed day on the water, when all of a sudden, you see fish fly from the water, and the massive humpback shadowing straight over the top of the boat, coming down and hitting the bow.
Seriously, this looks like something made from a movie, and definitely not real life.
I just couldn’t imagine being in a situation like this, and you already know everybody on that boat thought for a split second they were about to get crushed by a humpback whale.
