A sea lion wandering into a fish market is not something that you see every day. So when a huge one came to check out the vendors’ delicious wares, the people just couldn’t get enough of the cuteness of it all!
Thanks to evolution, it is much simpler for us humans to gain access to food whenever we feel hunger. But for wild animals, the process has remained tedious – they have to hunt for their meal every single day. It’s the way nature was made, however, it looks like sometimes, even the hunting process gets tiresome for these animals, too.
And this huge South American sea lion just proved that.
One day, this sea lion noticed a fish market that was set up on shore. The creature decided to try his luck and waddled in to check out the supply and as it turns out, he came to the right place – there was plenty of fish in the stand!
The scene looked just like a sea lion’s dream – all the fish were laid out in front of him, and all that was needed was for the vendor to give him some.
Hoping that someone would take notice of him, the sea lion waddled closer to one of the men working in the fish market. He stood there patiently until the man finally offered him a snack.
His plan worked!
However, the sea lion seemed like he needed more than just a snack, so he stayed and followed the man’s every move, hoping that he would be getting more fish – and he did.
All around them, the people continued to work and the man tried to be as productive as possible – all while a famished sea lion was there observing his every move.
By then, a small crowd had gathered around them, amused by the sea lion’s clever choice of a place to get lunch.
Well, it seems like the fish market has gained a new adorable customer. The only downside? He gets everything for free!
