Undoubtedly one of the great advantages of being a seal is the ability to saunter up onto any shore that you feel like across the world (unlike the Blue Whale who has trouble lounging in the shallows since he’s the biggest.animal.in.the.world).

Within this clip, we see our underwater pal Gary hard at work treating a seal like a dog off the coast of Britain in the Scilly Isles. Giving an affectionate handshake and some cheeky bro hugs, this is the sort of guy you would welcome hanging out with in and out of the water. Especially since he seems to behave like any normal dog.
