Animals Video

This is the hilarious moment a cheeky bird stole a fish that was being thrown at a sea lion’s mouth.

Megan Babcock captured the unusual scene at SeaWorld Orlando, Florida, on January 5 and uploaded the video to social media where it went viral with over 15 million views.

Ryan Hardie, a friend of Megan’s, threw a small fish at one of the park’s sea lions, but a heron was quick to intercept and catch the snack with a swift move, leaving the poor animal confused and still hungry.

Megan can be heard saying ‘those damn birds’ in the background as the heron flies away with the food.

Megan said: “It was such a funny scene!”
