Massive hungry sea lion waddles himself into fish market to ask for a snack

April 26th, 2021

We, humans, know how to do things that allow us to meet our basic needs.

We go to the hospital when we are sick. We sleep when we are sleepy. And we go to the market to buy foods that ease our hunger and appease our taste buds.

But not everyone can just get the food they want when they want it.

For wild animals, it’s really not the same.

Some animals need to be taken care of by humans, there are also some who work on their own just to have food to eat like wild animals.

And it’s probably not easy for them even though they do that all the time.

A great example of this is a sea lion.

These creatures love different fishes like salmon, rockfish, anchovies, and many more. They usually dive under the sea but they also “stay in shallower waters so they could find food”.

But this adorable South American sea lion did it differently.

He was spotted at a local fish market to look for food. And he chose to go to the perfect place. It was like he knew where to go to find food.

It’s like humans who are shopping at grocery stores. It’s so cute that it delighted many people.

Was he successful to get some food?

Fortunately, he was. Thanks to the men who were working at the market. As the sea lion went closer to one of the guys, he patiently waited for food.

After a few moments, one of the guys gave him fish to indulge in.

He quickly caught the fish with his mouth and he looked really hungry.

The sea lion did not only receive one piece of fish but he got two. Thanks to the generous man who gave them.

Of course, the sea lion’s patience deserves to be noticed too.

He didn’t leave that place and made sure to watch the men the whole time. And see what happened, his patience was all worth it.

The video went insanely viral. Many people are happy to see the clip online. Thanks to the person who uploaded it.

“Giving back what we take. A South American Sea Lion waits for his share at the local fish market.”

This sea lion is a certified social media star because his video has been shared 17,000 times. 13, 000 people also liked the post.

It’s a good thing that many people have seen it. For sure, all of them got delighted by the cuteness of the sea lion.

He encountered kind people.

I wonder what would happen if the sea lion went to other places and didn’t meet these amazing men. His life could have been in danger. But thanks to God, that was not the case.

The people he met are actually kind and giving, especially the man who gave him food. Hopefully, many of us would also do the same for animals. They need our help and we shouldn’t hesitate to do our part to keep them safe.

For sure, if they had the chance, they would help us, humans, too.
