That’s the sealiest thing I’ve ever heard – a seal has been caught belting out a huge snort for a filmmaker.

William Drumm, 31, from Colorado, US, spent three days in town, San Simeon, where he was amongst thousands of elephant seal.

Known for always grunting and snorting, William was thrilled to capture this vocal seal letting out a huge snort with his mouth wide open.

William, a photographer and filmmaker, said: “These guys are always grunting, farting snorting, gargling.

“However this was definitely the best snort I filmed after several days of shooting the seals.

“My favorite place to travel to is all over the California coast, especially Big Sur and Monterey Bay.

“It’s tough to say if this is the weirdest thing I have witnessed but it’s definitely up there.”
