Normally it’s cute dogs and cats breaking the internet these days. It’s not their fault, it’s just because their crazy owners have a camera on them 24/7. I mean I’m pretty sure dogs and cats have more Instagram followers than us average humans these days.
But this time, we have a baby seal making the internet as a whole let out a “AWWWWWWW!!!”
Trust me this isn’t clickbait one bit, it’s the cutest thing ever.
Recently, US Navy officers were running into the ocean to take part in a military exercise.
No it wasn’t that guy, but it seems like this seal just wanted to hang out with the troops. In the clip which is below, War Office Productions captured the little guy scurrying to the sea with the men. They captioned the clip with ‘Show ‘em how it’s done’ and that’s exactly what he’s doing!
He (or she I won’t assume) is so excited to get out in the water with the soldiers, I think the entire internet could relate. Take a look for yourself.
Commenters couldn’t hold their joy in either saying things such as:
“The lil guy is gonna show the big guys how it’s done! Hahaha awesome!”
“This is literally the cutest! He looks and acts like an excited dog! looks to the side like ” come on guys! what we doing today???”
“A real seal team with a seal of approval”
Most people were just impressed by navy seals hanging with a real seal and yeah that’s the coolest thing you’ll see all day. Well maybe other than this…
Okay maybe not but I tried.
According to the Animal Facts Encyclopedia:
Most seal species live in very large social groups called colonies that may come together to sunbathe in masses of hundreds, and take to the beach to mate and raise young in tightly packed gatherings of thousands.
Perhaps this little guy got away from his friends and was trying to fit in with a new pack! The Leopard Seal is the only seal that lives alone if you don’t count this one after his divorce…
Let’s hope someone was able to help this lone seal find his way back home! In the mean time, take a look at these other seal facts. You never know when you’ll be at a trivia night and you need to know all about seals!
