You can almost picture the scene. A beautiful day in San Diego, perfect for a boat ride on the bay. You are bobbing along the water and in jumps ... the cutest critter to grace the Internet this week.
"Here's my new friend," the burly boater in the video explains. "Just hanging out with me, snuggling against my back." As soon as it hears the word "snuggles," his boating buddy, who has the BEST puppy-like expressions, rests its whiskered face adorably on the guy's shoulder.
And even though the boater thinks his new pal is a seal, it's actually a sea lion, a species that's easily trained and super-clever, which is why you often find them doing tricks in zoos and aquariums. But you can tell that from watching this cutie mug for the camera!
