Orcas are also known as Killer Whales, and this footage of a whale’s attack on a seal offers a glimpse at why the Orca has earned its other moniker. The footage was reportedly shot near Victoria in British Columbia and shows a male orca making an astonishing kill on a seal.

The seal is propelled high into the air after the strike, see the video above for the amazing footage, including a look in slow motion.
