Watch this sea lion take a casual stroll down a busy city street3/18/2013
A sea lion that we suspect has watched "The Little Mermaid" one too many times decided to become part of our world on the weekend. Pedestrians in Balneário Camboriú, a resort town in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina, were stunned on Saturday evening when the 10-foot-long, 700-pound sea lion left the Atlantic Ocean and waddled up Avenida Atlântica, the main ocean boulevard. Demonstrating its willingness to observe the laws of the land, the sea lion politely used a crosswalk to navigate the busy street. Firefighters and police tossed water on the animal to keep it wet during its adventure, which ended after around an hour and a half when it returned to the water. [Source]
