This seal swimming off the Baja Peninsula of Mexico got the shock of its life when it was lifted out of the water by a whale.
The little seal can be seen happily bobbing along in the water before disappearing back under the surface, only to reappear moments later on the back of a whale.

Perhaps the seal enjoyed his high speed trip - although it seemed keen to hop back off into the water and make his own way from there onwards.
Just last month footage showing an orca throwing a seal 80 ft in the air came to light.
A group of videographers were filming killer whales off the coast of British Colombia in Canada when the incident happened.
In the midst of the orca's feeding frenzy, one of the larger males tracks down a harbour seal in the water. The whale eventually catches up with the seal and tail flips the unlucky animal nearly 80 feet into the air.
The unfortunate seal shot through the air and came down for a rough landing on the surface of the water. The animal and then appears to have been provided as a snack for the rest of the whale pack.
