Sea lion jumps onto moving speedboat to beg for fish

SACRAMENTO, Dec. 7 (UPI) — A group of boaters off the coast of California filmed their encounter with a friendly sea lion that jumped onto the back of their moving vessel.

A video posted to YouTube by user Peter M. Ladey shows the sea lion on the back of the moving speedboat Sunday after jumping up onto the vessel to visit with the humans.

The sea lion barks at the humans, who then feed him fish.

“Sea lion hanging out on the back of our boat being fed the finest of fish, and what a friendly little pal he was,” Ladey wrote in the video’s description. “Not sure what the bump on his head is though.”
