Take that, sucker! Seal slaps kayaker with octopus

Man hit by octopus

Talk about a real slap in the face.

Mulinder was generally minding his own business when he spotted a massive seal fighting an octopus just below the surface of the water.

One seal swam right up next to them, and while trying to chew off the leg of the octopus, ended up slapping them in the face. From picking through New Zealand fur seals' poop and puke, researchers know that they're partial to octopus flesh.

"'I don't know who got the bigger fright - the octopus, the seal or me", he added.

He went on: "Such a raw moment, brought us so much laugh to all of us all day long".

Following the slap, the animals quickly disappeared into the water once again.

The octopus seemingly won the fight in the end, clinging to the bottom of Mr Mulinder's kayak for safety until it was removed.

Thanks to the hashtags used by Masuda, GoPro also took note of the clip and found it amusing enough to share in a Facebook post on September 25.

"Masuda posted: "(Mulinder) getting octopus smashed into his face by a seal?

Mulinder appears to be fine now, and so is the octopus, which apparently stayed stuck to his kayak and out of the grasp of the seal following the fight. Understandably, the video has become a viral sensation. They said they were testing the maker's latest model when the incident occurred. Fresh octopus forms a huge part of these seals' diet, though mealtime can be a bit chaotic and very messy, as Mulinder and co. discovered.

"Sometimes you're the seal".
