This Wild Sea Lion and This Man Suddenly Became Besties (VIDEO)

This man made a surprising best friend while out on the water in the San Diego Bay: a playful sea lion who decided to get cozy with a complete stranger.

The human in question took a video of himself with the aquatic mammal, who spends the whole time nuzzling his neck and acting more like a domesticated pet than a wild animal.

Of course this wouldn’t be the first time such a thing happened.

Sea lions have been known to kiss divers and even steal fish straight out of fisherman’s hands┬áso they’re not above such adorable antics. Or above breaking the law.
