The ocean is filled with so many huge animals from small to big. Some can be so big and intimidating, that it would scare most photographers. This Imgur user details his experience (with pictures from the event) when he came face-to-face with one of Antarctica’s most vicious predators.
What would you do if a 1,000 pound leopard seal attempted to feed you dead penguins?
Paul Nicklen, a profession underwater photographer, wanted to capture seemingly vicious leopard seals in a different light. These animals are excellent hunters and have a bit of a bad reputation. He explained, “I wanted to give this animal a fair shake. I wanted to go down to Antarctica and get in the water with as many leopard seals as I could, just to try to understand them.”
This was an incredible experience for this diver. Luckily, it had an awesome ending instead of being much worse.
