Video: Cormorant attacks juvenile Wolf eel

A diver captured more than she'd bargained for on camera when a juvenile Wolf eel she had been filming was attacked by a Cormorant.

The video - which begins with footage of an octopus - was posted onto Vimeo by Diver Jackie, and was filmed in La Jolla.

She describes the experience as an "absolute critter thrill" and says: "I’m glad no one was around, as I may have done quite the happy dance…but then mixed emotions, as I would have liked to spend some more time with the elusive eel – at least it didn’t seem hurt as it swam off. What a scene. What a thrill."
