Squuuuueeeeee!

All aboard! Baby seals! Next stop: Cutest Thing Ever. A baby seal wandered on board J.R. Gilkinson’s boat while it was anchored in Newport Beach, California. The seal pulled its way onto the boat’s hull and wandered around for a bit before coming to nuzzle Gilkinson’s knee. It’s all pretty good, but things get really great around the 2:30 mark. [YouTube]

"Hey guys, where's my margarita?"

Guests at the Pantai Inn in La Jolla, California, had an unexpected visitor earlier this week, when a sea lion pup wandered up off the beach and took up residence in one of the resort’s outdoor pool chairs. The lion lounged about for a while, before handlers from the local SeaWorld showed up to humanely remove the animal. According to the surveillance video, the sea lion went on quite an adventure. She traveled from the ocean, up a flight of stairs, crossed a major road and then meandered into the hotel courtyard.

The lady lion was taken to Sea World’s Animal Care Complex before eventually being released back into the wild. As adorable as an unexpected sea lion visit might be, it’s also a troubling indication of habitat destruction and over-development. According to reports, more than 200 local wild animals have popped up in unlikely places since the beginning of this year — up from last year’s numbers. [Huffington Post]

Anatomy Of An Amazing News Item: Shakira And The Impetuous Sea Lion

It’s another one of those stories. You know, the kind where the math doesn’t quite add up so you have to make a special visual equation to figure it out. Today, we found out that Shakira was nearly attacked by a wild sea lion while on an aquatic mammal tour in Cape Town, South Africa. “Suddenly, [a sea lion] jumped out of the water so fast and impetuously that it got about one foot away from me, looked me in the eye, roared in fury and tried to bite me … I was paralyzed by fear and couldn’t move, I just kept eye contact with it while my brother ‘Super Tony’ jumped over me and literally saved my life, taking me away from the beast,” the singer wrote on her Facebook page. Apparently the impetuous sea lion thought her Blackberry was a piece of food and jumped for it. Shakira survived the incident with a minuscule laceration on her hand. The part of this story that disturbs me most is the fact that she still uses a Blackberry. It’s iPhone time for Shakira. There must be an app for preventing feral sea lion attacks. [People]
