A sea lion living in captivity at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California is now best friends with a 5-year-old boy, and very much enjoys playing with him through the aquarium’s glass.

say that Milo, as this sea lion is called, first started playing with Sean Goodman about one and a half years ago, yet it was only recently when their performing tricks together stirred quite a lot of media attention.

“"They are really playful animals. They're bored out of their skulls in the tank and looking for something to do,” he went on to add.
