Look at this fantastic image by photographer Chase Dekker in Monterrey Bay.
“While the humpbacks were lunge feeding on a school of anchovies, a sea lion apparently didn’t jump out of the way fast enough and got trapped inside the whale’s mouth,” Dekker said in his post.
Thankful for the sea lion he managed to escape as the whale went back down into the water.

Just the other day I witnessed something out on Monterey Bay I had never seen before. While the humpbacks were lunge feeding on a school of anchovies, a sea lion apparently didn't jump out of the way fast enough and got trapped inside the whales mouth! At some point the sea lion escaped and the whale seemed fine too as it continued to feed, but it must have been a strange experience for both parties! That sea lion had the true "Jonah Experience"!
I’ve never seen anything like this before, and I doubt it’ll ever be captured again. National Geographic eat you’re heart out!
