Two massive sea lions were caught on camera resting on a tiny boat just off the coast of Washington by Joshua Phillips who was riding his boat as he passed by.
As seen in Mr. Phillips’ footage, the two giants appeared to be chilling while the boat was sinking due to the animals’ overwhelming weight.
While it isn’t clear who the owner of the boat is, it is definitely unusual to see two giant sea lions casually relaxing on such a small vessel.
The largest species of sea lions can reach up to 11 feet in length and weigh up to a whopping 2,500 pounds.
In addition, male sea lions are typically much larger than the females.
As the viewers suggested after the footage went viral, the two sea lions could be members of Stellar sea lions, the largest species of sea lions which thrives in the Pacific.
In another funny animal incident, a dog lover has gone viral after stopping her vehicle to assist a sad-looking pooch who was unable to reach his stuffed pig toy that had fallen over the fence.
As Claire Cummings revealed, she was on the way to visit her friend when she saw a huge dog leaning on the fence of his home and looking down at the toy he accidentally dropped. Seeing the pooch struggle to get it, the animal lover decided to stop her car and assist the dog.
“He could have easily jumped over the wall he was leaning on to get it but has obviously been trained very well not to jump over the wall,” she said in an interview with The Dodo.
As the woman explained, she instantly knew what was going on and what she had to do to solve the dog’s issue because she owns a walking business for dogs. And so, she stopped her car and picked up the toy before handing it over to the dog.
“We are huge animal lovers and would have hated to have thought that he could be sitting there waiting and nobody would help,” she added.
As the woman claimed, the pooch was extremely happy when he received his toy back. He also let Claire touch him for a moment before he went on to play with his stuffed pig.
