How to Cuddle With An Elephant Seal (Video)

A curious elephant seal makes it his mission to check out a beach-goer.

While it is important to understand how harmful it can be when humans interact with wild species, we are glad this woman restrained herself, remained calm, and safely let the elephant seal curiously sniff her! Please do not try this at home…but please do watch a heartwarming and innocent interaction between a human and a loving ocean creature.

To Lyn B.: I couldn't agree with you more. I would have been tempted to pet 'back', also.
This is a most amazing video, which demonstrates, how little we comprehend about the minds of our animal friends.
