Shakira Attacked By Sea Lion. Photos
World famous "Hips Dont Lie" pop-star Shakira was attacked by a sea lion as she tried to take photos of the animal. Shakira had been with a tour group and climbed down onto rocks to get closer to the mammal when it jumped out of the water and tried to bite her.
The 35-year-old said her brother Tony saved her life by jumping in front of her and helping her get away from the animal.
In a piece titled 'Special Report: Attacked by a Sea Lion,' Shakira explained on facebook: 'Suddenly, one of them jumped out of the water so fast and impetuously that it got about one foot away from me, looked me in the eye, roared in fury and tried to bite me.
'Everyone there screamed, including me. I was paralyzed by fear and couldn't move, I just kept eye contact with it while my brother "Super Tony" jumped over me and literally saved my life, taking me away from the beast.'
She added: 'We both got our hands and legs scratched by the rocks while trying to protect ourselves. I believe what happened is that it confused the shiny reflection of the blackberry I was taking these pics with, with some sort of fish. It probably thought I was teasing it with food and then taking it away from it.'
Columbian Shakira, who is dating Barcelona footballer Gerard Piqué, then visited penguins, posting a photo of her self wearing a colourful kaftan with the adorable creatures behind her.
