Last week, Melbourne 7 News shared an interesting video of a seal… No00 not the singer. A real deal seal who had some tips for hitchhikers.
Apparently, the pinniped has been taking copious notes from Uber users world wide and ended up hitching a ride down under. Early last Monday morning, the seal hopped on the front of a cargo ship and was escorted while lying on the bulbous bow. Some may call this the lazy way out… but we’re thinking this seal knew exactly what he was doing.
Who’s the one taking notes now?
Melbourn 7 posted the video to Facebook and shared it with their fans.
This is not first time someone has reported a hitch-hiking seal. Seals are actually known for this adorable habit. Boats, kayaks and surfboards are just a few of their chosen vessels. More often than not the seal is looking for a little bit of solace away from predators or maybe a little bit of shut eye.
Did you know that when seals sleep in the water, they keep half of their brain awake so they can detect predators, but when sleeping on land, they go into full sleep mode.
Wonder if this goes the same for boats as well?
