Watch great white shark get mobbed by gang of seals in ‘incredible and surprising’ footage

Spectacular footage captured off the southern coast of Africa shows a huge band of seals swarming and driving off a great white shark. The scene features in the first episode of the new documentary series “Planet Earth III.”

South African fur seals (Arctocephalus pusillus) feast on massive shoals of fish that gather in nutrient-rich coastal waters. In the three-minute-long clip narrated by naturalist and presenter David Attenborough, a herd of seals clambers down jagged cliffs to reach the water and dives below the waves in search of food.
