Shakira Attacked by a Sea Lion

This afternoon Shakira happened to see some sea lions and seals . She was thinking how cute they were so she decided to get a bit closer than all of the other tourists and went down to a rock trying to pet them doing a baby talk while taking pictures.  Suddenly, one of them jumped out of the water so fast and impetuously that it got about one foot away from Shakira , looked her in the eye , roared in fury and tried to bite her . Everyone there screamed, including her .

She was paralyzed by fear and couldn’t move , She just kept eye contact with it while her brother “Super Tony” jumped over her and literally saved her life , taking her away from the beast. They both got their hands and legs scratched by the rocks while trying to protect themselves .

Probably the sea lion confused the shiny reflection of the blackberry she was taking pics with , with some sort of fish .
