When something’s in your way, sometimes you just have to move it – no matter how big it is.

Pick on someone your own size: The giant Elephant Seal reacts after receiving
an unwelcome slap

So when this king penguin found a giant elephant seal blocking his path to the water, he gave it an almighty slap with his flipper.

But he quickly realised his error as the beast, which is 300 times heavier than he is, let out a huge roar and forced him to waddle backwards.

Luckily, that was as vicious as the encounter got, as the penguin slunk off to go the long way round to the sea.

The altercation on the South Atlantic island of South Georgia was captured by British wildlife photographer Robert Fuller.
