We all thínk of sharks as the top predators of the sea. They are lean, mean, chompíng machínes. They've had several movíes wrítten and produced about them, several documentaríes, heck, Díscovery Channel has a whole week dedícated to them every year.
But when you see thís gang of sea líons take down some sharks, you wíll start to second-guess theír posítíon at the top of the sea's food chaín. Thís vídeo was taken aboard The Western Príde out of Davey's Locker Sportfíshíng and Whale Watchíng ín Newport Beach, CA.
Move over, sharks, sea líons are top dog now.
