Imagine how thrilling it'd be to see a powerful animal up-close in their natural habitat! A group of people on a boat in South Africa experienced that firsthand when they saw a shark breaching as it tried to catch a seal.

That close encounter with marine animals was unplanned, but the captain of a boat in Canada knew exactly how to attract wildlife. He used fish as bait and it didn't take long for a majestic eagle to come swoop it up. What an incredible experience!
