She’s an avid fan of nature, but Shakira came close to a scuffle with a sea lion while on a tour in Cape Town, South Africa over the weekend.
The “Hips Don’t Lie” hottie tried to snap a photo of a bristly aquatic dweller when he hopped out of the water and started towards her.
Shakira shared, "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."
"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, "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."
