  1. 2:11 that poor seal was focused on the surface and was taking a breath the second the shark saw it, and by the time the seal looked under water the shark was on him.

  2. That initial charge and bite is what usually happens to people if they are bitten, but then they let you go once they realize you weren't a seal. That's my understanding anyway. Very good chance you won't survive it.

  3. "yes yes yes!!!" – some weird creepy guy about to have an orgasm watching a seal be shredded apart. thumbs down discovery channel.

  4. Never forget a white man made a documentary about his sexual experience with a Dolphin called “Dolphin Lover.”

  5. Commentary is one of the worst I've ever heard. "HE'S GOT IT" "YA SHARKS GOT IT" "DID U SEE THAT? SHARK GOT IT!!" – Do these morons think we're watching a different video?

  6. Great footage Guys. Right place, Right Time…. For you and the shark, Not the seal.
    I do a fair bit of Drone patrolling along east Coast of Australia over the last 4years. Have a Passion for Sharks and there mannerisms and notice some Key indicators of their Behaviors. Interesting, never Bores me. Looking for opportunities to step it up.

  7. There was cloudy water between the seal and shark. Im sure that played a huge part in the shark catchn the seal. Dang, that was somethng else to see.

  8. true evidence that sharks dont hunt humans.. they just "bite-test" the "human object"..
    would a great white hunt a human, the damage would be deadly, even if the shark would release the human again.

  9. I am a scuba diver and once came face to face with a sea lion. I thought it was a shark at first. I just instantly stopped and did a 180 and so did the sea lion. Ive been to anacapa island and Catalina and all up and down the beaches and marinas in southern california and even in hawaii scuba diving and snorkeling and surfing and never seen a shark. I never do want to see one either.

  10. Have sympathy for the seal ? Hahahaha I thought it was cool as holy crud ! That was cool video I felt zero sympathy for the seal cuz what was the seal in the water doing.. Looking for fish to eat. Awsomly cool video…

  11. Let’s go hunt, doo doo doo doo doo doo

    Let’s go hunt, doo doo doo doo doo doo

    Let’s go hunt, doo doo doo doo doo doo

    Let’s go hunt!

  12. Why do we always have to say that they didn't feel a thing? I'm sure the seal felt a lot of pain, panick, and terror.

  13. That seal is a baby.. Just look at the size.. It's inexperienced, don't understand what the girl is talking crap about.. Clearly she knows not what happened

  14. Seals and sea lions can usually out maneuver white sharks. If they see it coming. This young seal definitely didn’t

  15. Recently I saw a video of a guy diving and when he turns to the camera (somebody else was filming)… suddenly a great white literally crashes in his head…..Dud….if the shark did the same thing this one here did…that guy wouldn't have his head anymore,,,,

  16. You know what would be awesome? Long videos like these with absolutely 0 commentary unless its david attenborough bc commentators are so damn annoying.
