Elephant seal fighting with a Northern sea lion

When I was at the MPA today at 14:40 I observed one of the elephant seals fighting with a Northern sea lion for a position on the centre rocks. I had not seen a cross species conflict like that before. They were very aggresive, it was unclear who had the upper flipper and the outcome was inconclusive. I took two visitors from CBC Radio Canada french service out.
