Please subscribe to my YouTube channel so I can get Live Streaming 🙂 http://bit.ly/10PN6qUBaby sea lion acting like a cat. Must see!Wow! So cool!Wow tia you’re dumb..it’s not a federal crime to touch a wild animalThis is the most precious thing! I could just sit and watch this all day! He is adorable! Outstanding 🙂 Thank youCutie* lolThank you for sharing such a wonderful, nature-moment.What a privilege to have such a sweet encounter! I sure hope the little one was able to get with a colony of sea lions and survive. How nice that you were there to give it the rest and companionship obviously needed. Too bad you didn’t have some fresh fish to feed it. 🙂 Thank you for sharing.Wow… Sooo amazing experience.. Unique coup de foudre ;)…Well, we must to admit that all animals know a good person when they meet one.. This man really won my heart. He’s so gentle talking and sit there for an hour. YOU’re such a special man..Serious question, did it libe?How sweet. Just too cute. To Meg.. You stated they should have called rescue so it could be raised at sea world.. THAT would be cruel. Animals should not be used to entertain people for money their entire lives and you suggesting that makes me think you might need to educate yourself on what sea world is really about. I had actually rather this little darling be eaten by a shark than live at sea world. If you care about animals you should never support them exploiting animals for profit!No se si me gusta o no :(, parece cansadito 🙁Give him a can of tuna already.I would give it a hug…I too think the back of its neck looked injured. This is a rather unnatural behavior for a wild animal, as far as I know. Wild animals usually only approach humans if they really need help. I would have called wildlife to make sure just because of his behavior.Sooooo LUCKY!!!„One of the best days of my life“ I totally believe you. You are very lucky.This is beautiful – Baby sea-lion comes for a snuggle on the boat…..This is beautiful – Baby sea-lion comes for a snuggle on the boat…..the baby seal must LOVE rubbing against leg hair!! So cute!i think he was too young to be on his own, he was looking for love safety and family and sorry to say but most likely didnt survive much longer after they let him goSooo adorable…….So jealous I may have to charter a boat to go looking for that little guy! So happy you got to experience once-in-a-lifetime Event such a special little guyCongrats! Ths animal was really lucky because it founded good persons like you! 🙂Frankly, I don’t see what’s so moving about this. I thought the sea lion was adorable — but —– the guy never really responded to the situation. I kept waiting for him to pet the fellow — or at least make a kind or loving remark about him —— but rather ——– he just sat there passively — like some kind of an ignorant potato —— when the sea lion was so very obviously looking for a trace of affection.(added from a reply below): Also, a question: how did the baby sea lion get on the boat? Did it somehow just magically jump on the boat? Or was it pulled on the boat by some people overly anxious for a YouTube moment? And – if by chance they did pull the baby sea lion on – couldn’t the act of doing so potentially put the little fellow’s relationship with its mother (assuming she might still be a part of its life) in jeopardy – by separating them?If you want to impress me – show me something with an actual exchange of affection between two beings.He should have been taken to a marine mammal center. This sea lion is too young to be on its own, a sea lion mother would never have allowed this. Still an awe inspiring experience.Why do people INSIST on holding their camera/phone the WRONG way to shoot pictures or video? It’s just stupid.What a delightful experience!This sick or starving creature was obviously begging anyone for help. You can see him wobbling and unsteady, very thin, and he probably died within another day or two. You could have locked him in the cabin and had rescue meet you at the docks. Then you would have saved his life, instead of just recording the end of it.Hi J.R., Enjoyed your video very much, and your intelligence in how you interacted with this baby California Sea Lion (Zalophus californianus). I see you posted this in May. I estimate that this sea lion is between 6 months and year old. Did you actually encounter him in May, or was it earlier? I have other questions if you are monitoring your comments.Having worked with stranded sea lions, I may have information that will be of interest to you. In fact, I wonder if he has been stranded and released. The cowlick on his neck is relatively common, and is just a cowlick probably. The marks on his head may be just coloration variations or may be places where he sustained bruises at some time in the past (can make permanent hair color changes.) Sea lions are ‚thigmotactic‘, meaning they like to sleep piled on top of one another. So, you made the grade and are one of the gang.This sea lion looks like he is in good condition, but a bit on the light side. It may have really helped him, if he is far from a ‚haul out‘ to be able to rest for awhile and be dry, since it is a lot easier on his system to stay warm in air, than in the water. I hope he was relatively close to land when he left. These animals are mostly intercoastal and don’t usually stray too far from land – especially when small and light bodied.A lot of my career has been involved in helping people to learn about, and interact with, animals like this. It is really great to see someone have an amazing encounter, and respond intelligently and responsibly. You may have saved his life by giving him a chance to rest. Blessings!omg i want one!!This guy is young and I bet moms not around call a marine mammal center if you encounter strange behaviors like this they will take in sea lions nurse them back to health.This is wonderful!! I am just angry that this man didnt let his daughter I guess to touch it and it has to pass so long time to understand that this animal is a good animal and came to find mothers love,not to fight!! But some people are so untrustable in their life that death or cheats are chasing exactly such kind of people. This sea lion would be a good human friend and if I met it there,I would have taken it to live with me in my swiming pool inside and outside my house. Very nice movie!!Cute! How did the day end? Did he go back in the water on his own? Or did you have to put him back?no he was not injured I have seen other videos of sea lions that like to be around people for some reason! and jump on boats but not like this…soo cuteoh really cute guy 🙂oh my god~~~that is adorable…. thanks for treating him kindly :>that was incredibleThat’s awesome!I do believe thats a female sea lion but still extremely cute! I’m so jealous!!Knowing what brutal creatures humans are, that sea lion was fortunate to find some decent ones who didn’t kill and eat him.That’s amazingBeautifulBest video I think I’ve ever seen…. What an incredible experience! 🙂So cute. Thank you for sharing 🙂Soooo amazing! What beautiful creatures. Definitely a once-in-lifetime experience… once in a MILLION lifetimes!Seal is lucky… Just like everyone has commented. Here in the US, it’s 50-50… Let that try to happen in other places in the world. Hell, let that seal hop on my boat ( I don’t have one)…. I wouldn’t attack it but I wouldn’t let it touch me.SOOOOOOOOOOOOO Precious….Love this..wish it could happen to me…SOOOOOOOOOOOOO Precious….Love this..wish it could happen to me…„Sup brah, nice boat you got here. Yeah just gonna take a nap, hope that’s ok. Thanks bruh“„Just pet me pleeeeaase“ Such a cute little face!Awesome !How could you resist petting him !That is so exciting, I would have been in my element had the same happened to me!You shouldn’t have touched it or beckoned it to come to your boat – if it was in your boat for an hour there is a possibility it got separated from it’s family & won’t survive Laws – http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/education/viewing.htmAwesome. It’s gotta be pretty profound experience when a wild animal boards your ship, climbs up on the bench, takes a look at the sights and then spends an hour resting on your lap. This made my day =)Thank you for sharing. Lovely experience. I’ve watched it quite a few times over and over.Omg, it’s SOOO cute how he snuggled up against your legs!Whoever keeps saying not to reach out or touch the sea lion is a real asshole and a buzzkill. The sea lion is obviously harmless and loves humans. Cut it out.Jack Bauer is friends with Many SEALSSea lions and seals are awesome they make me loving 😉I would die happy if this happened to me ;__;I don’t see why nobody tried to interact more with it from the beginning. I thought it was obvious that it wouldn’t have disproved of a nice neck rub.Put the phone in landscape mode!Where are the parents? I wonder what the Marine Mammal Center thinks about this incident. I understand they have been rescuing a lot of them this year.I wonder if this wasnt an escapee from a sea world type place. Pretty cool…but it is still a wild animal…186 animals watch this movie and wished they had the opportunity to lie down on humans xDpuppy of the SeaNo wonder they’re called ‚pups‘!He looks like he wanted cuddles and strokies!Oh it’s a wee baby! I hope it hadn’t lost it’s parents 🙁amazing!! thanks for sharing that 🙂Was he ok, what else happened?I would imagine that if he/she was 2 miles out on it’s own that maybe it got separated from the others or wandered to far off and caught a current. Should have brought it back closer to land and port.Awesome experience with young sea lion.That was Awesome 🙂This is adorable!That was greatAwesome stuff. I guess he got tired of listening to country in the end.This is SO PRECIOUS!#cuteanimals #cutevideo #sealionWow!!How we would all love to do this!!!! Wonderful!!ugh, turn your phone sideways. 🙁 Otherwise, nice video.amazing… Hermosura completa… sehr schönes video.The animal graces them with his presence , least they could do is touch his head and show some love.What kind of monster are you, turn you camera dammit!That „my new friend“ pic at the end is awesome!Proves to us humans how animals can love and accept us without fear and judgement…thanks so much for sharing your amazing experience…i am in awe and a wee bit jealous…:)AWESOME experience.. I work at a Marina, and get to see lots of Seals, and get very close to them.. But never been that close… Thank you for sharing 🙂Something tells me your souls have met!That’s why they call them „seadogs“…Dogs with flippersDid you take him home with you.This video is really adorable but just a reminder, don’t touch the sea lions or any other marine life that want to hang out with you. I’m not saying they are dangerous, I’m just that some not so nice people could be the next humans it decides to investigate and that could be bad news for the marine life. 🙂this was probably a moment where a great white was in the neighbour and you guys just happened to be there and he saw an escape!! and then showing his silent gratitude for saving his life!I think this cute guy was saying: „Please stop killing us, we will cuddle with you!“ XDoh this is so nice :0))Joy, so loving, God bless <3Amazing 🙂 that shows that animals are our friends & the nature respect that!Vertical video syndrome watch?v=Bt9zSfinwFAHe loves you, because you gave him safety and a place where he can rest. I think he hade traveld for a long time and as a result he got exhausted. You have been in the right place at the right time !My guess this animal was raised by humans & dumped due to their feeding requirements. I feel for the little guy…he was looking for the human support he has never forgotten & the fact he was all alone that far out in open ocean, makes him a sitting duck for sharks. I hope a zoo or something similar was contacted in the animals behalf & brought back to the docks.What happened at the end. Did he jump of the boat again?Thanks for sharing your special day…loved the video and your new friend! 🙂i love it 🙂Heartwarming =)we should make these things pets, they are like dogsits beautiful. i dont want to think about what would have happened if there were instead of these nice guys, bad people..Amazing!!!WOW!!!! My jaw was dropped the whole time. What a friendly little guy. Just wanted some cuddle time…He was probably hungry 🙁Animal love is without any questions, they just love! And this vid says it all!That has to be the most amazing thing i have ever watched on YouTube. Thank you so much for posting..I love it! What a real treat 🙂*Interesting* … but somehow *strange* .Looks hungry and lonley.. did they rescue him?!i don’t understand tho why did u not pet him from the beginning? Oo they r harmless….please turn your phone sideways next time this is a great video but i just can’t get passed that sorryIf this had been a woman….she would have been rubbing and touching him and reciprocating the love the little guy obviously asked for and needed. He asked for love but the dude denied it…..sad.. I Love this little guy! 3:39funny and cute!!!Animal love is without any questions, they just love! And this vid says it all!awwww he’s so cute!!!Why didn’t you pet him??omg i´m so jealous – that so sweetOh wow … this is so cute and so coolAmerica the retarded strikes again! The animal has clearly been handled by people a lot prior to this.Everyone get on board the media delusion train makes me sick. A nation of brainwashed ninnies that won’t speak their minds because they no longer have them.What a beautiful video. I hope it makes people see that animals are not creatures with no feelings, they feel and hurt, the same as we do. What a day that must have been. Just watching the video was a wonderful experience. He was so cute. I hope he stays safe. Thanks for sharing : ))He must have been tired and wanted a rest … you never know but there could have been some predator after him so he took a risk and boarded the boatThank you for sharing. And thank you that you where so thoughtful and let him get closer on his own term. What happende after an hour??? Did he leave the boat by himself and swam away?? Where you close to land? Lovely video.…and then they ate it. 😛This sea lion must be sick or something, normally they don’t do stuff like that. 🙁Maybe a rescue seal pup from here? http://www.marinemammalcenter.org/about-us/News-Room/2013-news-archives/socal-sea-lions.htmlThey provide assistance to stranded seal pups, they are a non-profit and rely on donations to feed and care for these sweet creatures.poor karina just wanted to pet the cute little guy!vertical video syndromeWell done. If wildlife approaches you, and you don’t want to or cannot run away, this is the way to do it. All on the animal’s terms. I am envious of your experience, Mr. Gilkinson!This sounds maybe harsh… but… i would pet this little cute guy till it dies! sorry.. but this experience is so cool! I would love to see a sea Lion once in my Life!As you were sussing the situation out, letting it all happen on the animals terms, did you determine the sex by any chance? My gut told me he was a little boy. However, I am accustomed to the fact that, „I have 2 very intelligent 13 & 15yr old sons, therefore… I no longer, @anytime know what I’m talking about, I’m all old, I was right about 30yrs ago, I don’t understand etc, etc.“ So, as I stated, what do you guys feel it was! Hopefully ya’s did let him know, that not all humans were as intelligent as you, & to tell all that would listen under the water down @BikiniBottom that there is hope, & maybe even a chance that us menfolk, we won’t out-right ruin this entire earth before nature runs it’s full cycle… I’ll think of this for days now. Thnx-Sure it changed your life. But consider how it changed the seal’s life by giving it a trust of humans. It’s likely doomed.Sea lion? More like sea dog! Fido with flippers. I almost wish they could be domestic. :p1. Beautiful video, and I envy you that you got to experience it. 2. It’s amazing how many ass hat, morons are experts on Sea Lions on here. 3. All you idiots that are accusing this guy of not being friendly enough to the Sea Lion are complete, and utter IDIOTS.Lets stop arguing and enjoy the video. J.R. Handled the situation perfectly and no one got hurt, including the sea lion. He rested and then jumped back into the water. It was just an unprovoked encounter by a tired little sea lion. I envy your amazing experience!Aww! What a super trusty Sea Lion!Doggy mermaids.Just as well the guy wasn’t Canadian,he would have clubbed it to death. How anyone can hurt such creatures is beyond me.I never tire of seeing this video.Thats lovely… enjoying the sun like we all do, and a bit of companionshipwow imagine what a great moment that would have been to record, if only you hadn’t recorded vertically.He would have gone home with me.I LOVE animals so much!!!It’s a dog mermaid 😀well, it’s an amazing experience but you don’t think it’s an exhageration to call it *life changing* ?where’s the shark?YOU HAVE TO SEE HOW TO BE WITH OPEN HEART AND LEARN.That’s a WOW a big one toThat’s a WOW a big one toIt is strange that they did not kill him, he’s invaded their territory! It’s the Americans!Супер!!!!!I love it! Sooooo cute))))))))I guess this family is Jehovah Witness:PNot bad!разводкаDoes a sea lion have a mean bite?„An experience of 1000 lifetimes“ … ruined by a video taken in portrait mode!Was the sea lion unwell? i hope not! He is so adorable!A dose of total cuteness for your Friday afternoon 🙂I would love to bang that it was so hotThat’s really amazing. My sarcastic sense elf humor though I would have ended the movie with me BBQ’ing a large piece of Red meat and then left it for audience interpretation lol.Slappy’s son. Lol. But who knows what this baby has seen..Pet him already, dude! !we dont know who we are, cause we dont know what nature is, but we all should know that we are nature, all of us 😀Simply adorable. Clearly he wanted to be stroked and perhaps he had a message for you, was he trying to tell you something? Was he hungry? Thank you for sharing.Pet him goddamnit! AHHHHHHHWonderful!Certain Animals trust Humans but some humans are just savages.We were put on earth to take care of them anywaySuch an amazing video. Glad that trusting little guy found kind folks like you to play with him.Lovely! It probably sensed you are a good person 🙂very coolThe snugglefest starts around the 2:40 mark.Без коментариев…Seals are just dog mermaids.Sea Lions are also referred to as a Dog that swims. Cute video.AWWWWW!!Amazing experience, so glad you caught it on cameraJ.R. Gilkinson, where were you when you filmed this, there has been an alarming amount of emaciated and dying baby seals showing up on the coast of California and nobody knows why…How Awesome!!I want a baby sea lion as a pet now…this is something else! a #babyseal with no reserves about his new found floating friends climbs aboard a boat off of the #californiacoastI have a dream. That one day technology will allow us to live outside the planet so we can all leave and this planet will become a sanctury for all the life forms it contains. We will look from the distance thinking how marvelous and humble our beginings.My Life Changing Experience with a Baby Sea LionLike an amphibian puppy dog.Thanks for sharing this precious video. I am amazed at how excellently you contained your emotions and remained calm in the first minutes of the sea lion’s approach. That was a very intelligent move, especially if you are unfamiliar with Sea Lion behavior. Like others have commented, I, too, do not tire watching the video repeatedly. It’s no surprise that it has had SIX MILLION VIEWS… and counting. What a blessing to witness.Maybe it was hungry and tired from looking for food, or escaping from a predator that wanted to eat it. I saw that gash in it’s neck. I wonder if they’re normally that thin, poor little thing.How come the footage of it boarding the boat is missing? I smell another classic American ‚intervention‘.Ein Pärchen saß in einem Boot auf dem Meer, als sie bemerkten, dass neben ihnen etwas im Wasser schwamm. Es stellte sich heraus, dass es ein junger Seelöwe ist. Der junge Seelöwe wirkte müde und plötzlich kam er an Bord. Dort fühlte er sich sichtlich wohl. Er kuschelte seinen Kopf an das Knie des Filmers und entspannte sich. LINK: < http://heftig.co/paerchen-im-boot/>I like dog mermaidstrop mignon …..Sadly, young sea lions that do this are usually dying of starvation. 🙁Am I the only one who thinks the guy is kinda drunk, as „evidenced“ by the photo in the end?Why do smart phone users always capture once in a life time video events in vertical letterbox?60% of the whole experience missing….Smart phone users = video idiotsThis is the CUTEST most heart warming thing ever!!!What a dick, he didn’t let his wife touch it. He kept telling her not to, said „Don’t even do that again“. He wanted the baby sea lion to himself.Have you ever read, „A Dog’s Purpose?“ I’m a firm believer that our best friends are reincarnated and will find us again, and to me it seems like this little guy not only trusts you, but knows you. I hope you see him again. 😀Thanks for sharing! Wow… animals are more evolved than we areI was shouting „WHY WONT ANYONE PET HIM!?!?!?“ the whole time+Sordatos CáceresThe question is did you keep him or put him back in the sea where hes probably scared every second of getting eatenmaybe he or she was lonely and just needed someone to chill with…soooo cuteEvery time somebody records vertically a baby sea lion dies…. :/um yes, i’ll take fiveLater guy leaves wife for baby sealRofl what a weak person you are. Seriously scared to touch and pet him? You must be a cat kind of guy. City boyOh Newport Beach. Yep Orange County yuppieThese are the sealiest comments I’ve ever seen„don’t even reach out again“ what the fuck?! if aanyone tried to stop me from petting a seal would knock them out ! with the seal!And to think some people kill them! Experience of a lifetime, cherish this memory!The baby sea lion met the most brutal species on the planet and lived to live the tale. 😉這隻小海獅好可愛，Thanks for sharing this, JR, it’s an experience that would change everyone’s life. 🙂looks like a dog. so cutelove youe friend逼！逼！犯規！這個可愛度破表阿！！#cuteI think the baby sea lion is just too young to know any danger. By saying that i’m not saying that our dear video maker would do any harm to it.I just wonder when we were young, we don’t know any evil, why sometimes,some of us grow up being so cruel to wild animals.Like hunting and killing just for fun or sports. I wonder if one day this kind of harmony and trust between animals and human beings can be something very common. I do hope that can happen.Anyway, thank you for sharing this amazing experience with us, i’m sure it’s now warm memory for all of us.Wow he is so cute boyhe keeps saying don’t to her because he likes the feels on his leg for himselfThis Seal Lion Was Swimming By A Boat. But You Won’t Never Expect What He Did Next!Please Follow : +Interesting VideosTwo possibilities, one is that this pup had interact with human before, second, it is lost from its original family and is so tired swimming around looking for them, just want some rest and care. I am very happy to see that, this family of human is being very sensible, not scare, not over excited…..and they did the right thing….do not touch unless it want you to…….What a lucky man.I just hope the little sea dog doesn’t associate all humans with kindness… it would get him killed.But yeah… awesome experience in the truest sense of the word.อยู่ดีๆ “สิงโตทะเล” ตัวนี้ก็โดดขึ้นเรือและทำสิ่งที่คุณจะไม่เชื่อสายตาตัวเอง! คนที่อัพโหลดคลิปนี้ตั้งชื่อคลิปว่า “the experience of 1,000 lifetimes.”หลายๆ ครั้งที่เราไปดูการแสดงสัตว์ทะเล “สิงโตทะเล” คือสัตว์ชนิดหนึ่งที่เราจะพบเห็นได้บ่อยๆ ที่มันจะเล่นกับลูกบอล เล่นห่วง ซึ่งที่เราเห็นบ่อยๆ ก็คือสิงโตทะเลแคลิฟอร์เนีย แต่คุณรู้หรือไม่ว่า เจ้าตัวนี้ พอมันอยู่ในทะเลตามธรรมชาติของมัน ลักษณะพิเศษคือความเร็วในการว่ายน้ำของมัน ที่มากกว่าสิงโตทะเลทุกชนิดเลยทีเดียว โดยมันสามารถว่ายได้เร็วสูงสุดถึง 40 กิโลเมตรต่อชั่วโมงเลยทีเดียว!นอกจากนี้ ที่ต่างจากสิงโตทะเลตัวอื่นๆ คือ มันไม่มีขนดกหนา และจะอาศัยอยู่แถบแนวโขดหินของมหาสมุทรแปซิฟิก ตามชายฝั่งตะวันตกของอเมริกาเหนือ และใกล้ๆ กับเกาะกาลาปากอสของเอกวาดอร์นั่นเองซึ่งในคลิปนี้ เรือลำนี้ อยู่ห่างจากชายฝั่งราว 3 กิโลเมตร จากชายฝั่ง Newport แคลิฟอร์เนีย และเมื่อเจ้าสิงโตทะเลตัวนี้เห็นคนบนเรือ มันคงเหนื่อยมาจากการว่ายน้ำทั้งวัน จึงกระโดดขึ้นเรือทันที แล้วลองดูคลิปจนจบนะ คุณจะแทบไม่เชื่อในสิ่งที่มันทำเลยล่ะ!J.R. Gilkinsonน่ารักมากๆ เลยใช่มั้ยล่ะ? ถ้าชอบก็แชร์เลย แล้วลองไปดูเรื่อง “ลูกหมี” ตัวนี้จะทำร้ายคน แต่เป็นการทำร้ายที่น่ารักที่สุดในโลก ไปดู! ดูสิ คุณต้องชอบแน่ๆ!Ohhhhhh! He is so cuteeeeee and like a babyThe country music put it to sleepSo cute maybe spend a time for him to bunding take care to that sea lionThe Sea Lion is like damn man I just smoked an ounce of sea’weed‘ it alright if I just chill here for a bit?He did end up petting the sea lion.. It was prudent for him not to pat it at first. He let it get comfortable.. That Sea Lion may be small but it does have some very sharp teeth and strong bite. You wouldn’t want to have your fingers bitten off or sustain a serious bite especially at sea. Great experience! I wish it had been me.Cool!There’s a famous book about a Maine Sea Lion named „Andre“ … true story, was turned into a movie several years ago.Sea Lions are distant relatives of dogs, part of the canine family … several have become quite fond of us land lubbers.Awesome experience, thanks for sharing!Daaaaw, this Sea lion just wants wubzHow did he get aboard the boat?omg lucky man this sea lion seems a doggg i love it !!! such a great experience ^^I’m glad that you totally let him run the show. Showed lots of respect (and great restraint as he’s so cute I’d totally want to pet him!)Shouldn’t this poor baby be with it’s mama? I don’t know a lot about sea life, but it looks very young..Beauty will save the world!Awww.. He was rubbing against you because he wanted petting obviously. The human skin feels amazing for any animal, that is why almost any animal can be tamed, with petting, care and love.the reason why they are not stroking him is because it would be detrimental to him if he became too attached and comfortable in human company. the filmmakers are responsible and doing what’s best for this precious lil pup!!!!!He seemed to be lost and tired and very glad to find anyone or thing to interact with. What happened to him? Did he get thrown back overboard and left alone again?It’s quite fascinating when we think of friendly social sea animals we immediately think of Dolphins or Whales but Seals are very social as well, normally they don’t mind humans. This young seal was obviously exhausted and needed a rest. Poor thing you don’t get many opportunities to rest in the open ocean since your always going to be a target from Sharks and Orcas all while trying to find food yourself. The Seal seems wary at first but after he looks around and knows the people mean him no harm does he then settle down for his nap. Pretty smart animals too, many people call them the dogs of the ocean which I can see why.Спасибо за прекрасное видео!Доверился людям…а зря…Resisting the temptation to reach out and pet such a cute animal must have been challenging for everyone on that boat…I hate sealions so much, we need more large sharks on the west coastAmazing! You must be a very peaceful person! Good video!What happened to him, did you call animal rescue. It was probly starving or ill.Sea lions thoughts: „This is the best talking towel I have ever used“Cute creatures, I wanted to play with it.I must say, you are lucky he didn’t bite you on the balls. He got mighty closeThe sea lion acts as if it is happy to stay with you. I’m sure you didn’t take him home. lol But I am curious. Did it eventually go back into the water? did you have to put him off the boat? did you take him back to shore and get him some proper attention with animal rescue? Overall Thank you for sharing your experience. 🙂Is it a Feral Sea Lion? if so.. You should have it neutered or spayed before releasing it… Its basically up to us humans to make sure we control how animals reproduce. and if you are thinking about buying a sea lion from a breeder or a pet store… why not adopt one from the wild…before it is eaten by a whale?life changing experience? i hope that means that you’re a vegan now.FYI: interacting with marine mammals is illegal under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. I understand that it jumped on your boat – however, please do not touch the animal. There are serious consequences for the animal to become friendly with humans.http://www.westcoast.fisheries.noaa.gov/publications/protected_species/marine_mammals/pinnipeds/casealviewbrochure.pdfpage 6&7 has Genera guidelines set by NOAA http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/pdfs/education/california_marine_wildlife.pdfHe was seeking companionship, as well as rest. Your ability to accept ‚his‘ reaching out while preventing the humans aboard from making any struck an excellent, respectful balance. Have you asked any animal expert to interpret this? I hope the animal wasn’t sick, or alone. Thank you so much for sharing this.What a CUTIE! Going swimming with them tomorrow and I am very excited!Do you have your TV mounted vertically on your wall? No, didn’t think so. Turn the fucking camera.I sure hope it didn’t take on too much of that human scent and doesn’t get rejected by it’s mother or peers now, but it appears old enough to survive on it’s own though.Guy you are an asshole pat the dam thing! It clearly wasnt harmful.AssholeHe is soooo cute! I wonder if he was maybe a rehabbed sea lion, and that’s why he was so trusting. Either way, good on ya!What a bunch of retarded fucking idiots in these comments. So what the phone is vertical. Be thankful you could experience this at all.It is scary he just goes up to people like that. I hope he never trusts the wrong ppl.oh mahh gadddd TOOO CUTE!! i couldn’t hv resisted THAT long to start petting it – wuld hv done it rite after he felt comfortable n safe!! omg i want onee!!Just consider to call the next woman you see with a fur a whore.It’s so nice to see people (or just the one guy) being patient with the seal. There’s nothing worse than everyone forgetting that it’s a wild animal and screaming (like the woman at the start) ….because yes, it’s young, but it’s not a human baby that’s going to respond to your baby talk… Anyway, kudos to the itching post 🙂that sea lion later got killed by a shark because you didnt keep him how do you feel?Sooooooooooooooooooooooo CUTE!!! >///////////////////////////<plot twist : he was just trying to dry his fur.poor little guy he must’ve been really exhaustedADORABLE PETITE OTARIE .ซึ่งในคลิปนี้ เรือลำนี้ อยู่ห่างจากชายฝั่งราว 3 กิโลเมตร จากชายฝั่ง Newport แคลิฟอร์เนีย และเมื่อเจ้าสิงโตทะเลตัวนี้เห็นคนบนเรือ มันคงเหนื่อยมาจากการว่ายน้ำทั้งวัน จึงกระโดดขึ้นเรือทันที แล้วลองดูคลิปจนจบนะ คุณจะแทบไม่เชื่อในสิ่งที่มันทำเลยล่ะ!Dis you know that lion seal can chase human and eat them?that may well be the coolest thing i have ever seen in my life. i am just really glad you captured it because had you not, no one would’ve believed it. just ignore the people giving crap about not petting him or extending your hand to him. Anyone in the know is quite familiar with the fact that even a juvenile seal can remove a couple digits off your hand. Even if he was looking for a cuddle, these poor things have to duck and dodge the largest great white sharks in the world- that alone would make me a perpetual nervous wreck…..Awesome stuff!!!Awesome experience. How could you tell it’s a boy?What a blessing, this is so beautiful. I’m jealous 🙂What a Great Meeting. The little guy is very sweet. He is without fear, so lovely.did you give him/her any fish to eat?clearly a robit. wouldnt happen in the natureI wonder if anyone but me understand this pup illness is due to #Fukushima ?lucky guy!No one else can touch this seal, this is his moment and his alone apparently. got help who ever tries and ruin it for him by getting in on it.Beautiful and peacefulWahnsinn…..So was schönes 🙂You should never touch a Baby sea Lion, because of the smell. When a Baby animal has that human smell on it, the mother may won’t accept it anymore. May it’s really hard for us not to touch such a cutie, but at the end it’s better for it, because it still needs the help of his mother and without it can’t survive. You can read that kind of things in Internet, please inform yourself.why do you film vertical?Hi J. R. Gilkinson! I have seen the fantastic film with the sea lion and think that it’s a very unusual behavior for a sea lion. I shared the film on face book and have had quite a few questions after that. I was hoping that you could give an answer to these questions. How far from the shore were you when you met the sea lion? What most people asked was: “what happened to the sea lion afterwards”? Best Regards from Thorleif Grimstvedt Norway1:20 „Why would he come that close to us?“ He hasn’t any fear of humans ,…yet. And he/she is young and tired. Why not rest on a close, convenient floating thingy with other creatures that aren’t posing a threat? Not to mention those other creatures might be food once I rest up. Wild animals key instincts, eat, reproduce, shelter / safety… not necessarily in that order depends on several factors. Not so very different from the „human“ animal.Потом он достал член и выебал его в рот, приятного просмотраRecording the experience of 1000 lifetimes vertically: Because you’re mentally challenged.

But if a seal touches you, it’s okay. It’s against the law for handling a seal unless injured and in need of the aquarium official’s professional care. The fine is up to $5,000.The normal reason a sea lion gets this close or even gets on the boat is due to being curious or being afraid of closeby predators.PLEASE read about the situation of the sea lions in California… http://news.yahoo.com/sea-lion-standings–why-are-so-many-pups-starving-to-death-on-the-shores-of-california-204653019.htmlMaybe the sea lion was his son in his past life.Seals are the coolest animals.
