A brave seal appears to try a daring rescue attempt – by chasing after a great white shark near Seal Bay, South Africa. Pictured hot on the trail of the deadly predator, the stout-hearted swimmer seems determined to save a fellow seal trapped in the jaws of the colossal killer. But although the seal may appear to be making a valiant effort to save a friend in need, it was in fact using a clever survival tactic. By sticking close to the tail and body of the shark, the marine mammal is actually able to stay well clear of the sharks powerful jaws.

An elephant calf tried to approach an old buffalo bull and was taught a lesson it will never forget.
