Perhaps this sea lion pup was worried about what was underneath that boat.
In a rather surprising video, a group of people were out on a tour when a sea lion pup swims up to their boat and tries to get inside. After a little coaxing from the people, the sea lion pup eventually find its way inside and perches up on the side of boat, like it was a rock.
You have to see this video from Newport Coastal Adventure yourself. Things like this just happen, especially on video.
Pretty crazy, right? I think if that was me on that boat, I would have started getting real nervous about what was else was in the water that made that sea lion pup want to get out of the water so quickly. I mean, normally most animals have an innate fear of all humans, unless something else scares them more!
What do you think? Was that sea lion pup just looking for a place to hang out for a while and rest or was it trying to avoid getting eaten by Jaws?
I’ve seen enough of Shark Week to probably know better.
