Crazy Video WATCH: Playful Sea Lion Takes New Selfie Stick for a Swim
A trainer at a California aquarium has set up a selfie stick for the sea lions to use underwater – and the results are delightful.
Milo lives at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California.
He took the camera for a playful spin in a training session one morning, handler Hugh Ryono wrote online.
Ryono said he mounted a GoPro on the end of an old target pole, which ended up being surprisingly easy for the sea lion to carry.
“I just thought it would be neat to see a swimming sea lion from the same selfie stick perspective that surfers and other action sports athletes use, to give a ‘you are there’ feel to their shots,” he explained on the aquarium’s blog.
Later, the aquarium’s otters decided to get in on the action, too.
“I think the selfie stick worked quite well,” said Ryono.
