How To Cuddle With An Elephant Seal

Get ready for some extreme cuteness. This is a video of a woman and an elephant seal getting extremely cozy, kissing and spooning on a beach on South Georgia Island, a British overseas territory in the southern Atlantic Ocean.

A gift! Thanks so much. I love how still the woman is, how inviting, accepting. And brave. Lovely. Lovely.

That seems awfully dangerous to me.
I know nothing about Elephant seals, but they *are* wild, right?

Yes. Elephant seals are wild. And huge. That's not an elephant seal though. Might still be wild.

It's a baby and its obviously not going to do any harm to her (now its parents) ... some people just don't have a thread of adventure or wonder in their body...

How we treat and look after animals is a direct reflection of our humanity and sadly our lack of humanity when we destroy animals and there habitats.

Yes they feel, think and have emotions just like we do...

Adoreable. Extremely dangerous, but adorable.

Miles- Of course it has feelings. It's also a wild animal. Respect for wild animals means leaving them the hell alone.

This woman approached them exactly the right way...let them come to you. They do not fear humans, are non-aggressive, and are very curious. She let the baby do what it wanted and she was respectful of it, and its home, and that shows she is a true world traveler!
