KING PEAK, Calif., Feb. 25 (UPI) -- A group of seals in California had their moment of rest interrupted by a strong wave.

Video shared to Facebook by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service shows the group of four seals resting on a rock formation at King Range National Conservation Area in California before getting wiped out by a huge wave.

Three of the seals are carried away by the strength of the wave as they tumble off of the rock formation leaving just one behind.

The remaining seal is left with a look of astonishment on its face as it ends the video looking directly at the camera as it wonders what happened to its friends.

The video was captured by Bob Wick of the Bureau of Land Management who manage the area.
