How to Cuddle

...with an Elephant Seal!

A friend sent me the video below yesterday. I hate attempts to anthropomorphize animals - especially in the cutesy Disney fashion, but this is amazing. Maybe a biologist will inform me that what I'm seeing isn't what I think I'm seeing, but it certainly seems to me like the elephant seal wants closeness, connection, and body contact.

I understand completely.

  1. That is so cute! My cat and I used to cuddle on the couch. Animals need some kind of connection too I guess.

    Wait... aren't we animals too? ;-)
