Watching This Video Of A Sea Lion Eating A Shark Will Leave Your Jaw On The Ground

Netflix

We all think of sharks as the top predators of the sea. They are lean, mean, chomping machines. They’ve had several movies written and produced about them, several documentaries, heck, Discovery Channel has a whole week dedicated to them every year.

But when you see this gang of sea lions take down some sharks, you will start to second-guess their position at the top of the sea’s food chain. This video was taken aboard The Western Pride out of Davey’s Locker Sportfishing and Whale Watching in Newport Beach, CA.

Move over, sharks, sea lions are top dog now.

Not even an approaching bird can rip the shark away from the sea lion’s jaws.
