CHATHAM, Mass. — A shark tried to take down a seal and the result was not what you might expect.

According to the Boston Globe, Dr. Greg Skomal of the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries captured the video in the waters off Cape Cod.

The shark tried its best, but the seal fought hard and escaped the toothy predator.

Researchers from the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy and the state make twice-weekly trips to the waters off Chatham, Mass., to document great whites.
