The relationships that people can develop with certain animals are truly amazing. We all expect dogs and their moms and dads to have great relationships with one another, but what about animals you don’t normally think of as pets? Like a snake or a whale? Or, in the case of the video below, a sea lion?
In the video, shot in the Bosque de Chapultepec in Mexico City, Mexico, a little girl and her family are admiring the sea lion in his tank when the little girl decides to hold up one finger to the glass.
Intrigued, the sea lion rushes over and presses his nose up to the glass where her finger is.
That’s when the little girl starts moving her finger round and round, and the sea lion follows her every move!
In an amazing show of synchronicity, the sea lion performs every movement the little girl did with her finger.
There’s a saying that sea lions and seals hold a lot in common with dogs, and with this video it’s not hard to see why! This sea lion seems very eager to play with the little girl.
He even swims up to grab some air before coming back down to play some more!
Check out this playful sea lion in the video below, and please SHARE it on Facebook!
