Seal Jumps Aboard a Guy's Boat, Promptly Snuggles Him

Published On 10/25/2015 Published On 10/25/2015

As seen in a recent YouTube video, a man met a rather unexpected and adorable new friend -- in the form of a snuggly seal that hopped aboard his boat.

"Here's my new friend," the man says in the video while the seal is seen snuggling him from behind. "He jumped aboard out at the bridge. Just hanging out with me."

While there's no indication as to what led the seal to hop onto the boat, the guy doesn't seem to mind his cuddly new companion. In fact, it looks like they became best friends. Maybe there's a chance this friendly seal is related to Andre.
