Two sea lions, Cronutt and Tyrell, were recently released from the Marine Mammal Center in California. Usually, during these releases, a sea lion goes straight to the ocean, but when Cronutt realized her friend wasn’t with her she turned around and encouraged him to follow her. With her nudging Tyrell gladly waddled towards the sea.

The two sea lions were at the Marine Mammal Center being treated for different conditions. Evidently, Cronutt and Tyrell formed a special sea lion friendship bond while at MMC. The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, CA is the largest marine hospital in the world. Since opening in 1975 they have rescued and rehabbed over 20,000 animals.
