Seal Finds Toy Version Of Itself, Can’t Stop Hugging It

If there’s anything cuter than a seal, it’s a seal with a plush version of itself! This adorable animal at Mombetsu Land, an attraction in Japan’s Hokkaido district, got a special present from the zoo staff – a plushie that looks just like the ‘mini me’ version of the seal.

Clearly, the seal got smitten with the toy, as he couldn’t stop hugging it, riding it on the back, and squeezing the toy to its heart. We wonder if the seal thinks the toy is its baby. One thing is for sure – this is cuteness overload.

It looks like an animal that should be in the sea and not at a Japanese amusement park.

I agree. :) Instead of investing in zoos and captivities, people should invest in educational movies about animals for example
