A travel blogger from Blue Water Video has just posted a great video of a killer whale hunting a sea lion on Argentina’s southern coast of Patagonia. The whales are known to do this every year around this time, and the event has become a tourist attraction due to its strange nature. The whales basically beach themselves by thrusting their bodies on land. Within seconds, they attack their prey, and shimmy back into the ocean as the waves guide their way. This whole process takes but a mere few seconds, but is incredible to watch. According to experts, the phenomenon is unique to this part of Argentina, and it’s extremely rare to watch any kind of whale hunt this way.
