The teen told BuzzFeed News that last Friday night he went to the beach with three friends.

While there, they saw a sea lion and chilled near it for about an hour. "It was really nice," Ty said.

Ty shared a photo from the ~interaction.~ "I just took a pic with a seal boy," he tweeted.

This person didn't even believe the sea lion was ~real.~ So, the teen shared some video evidence.


"Seals like pictures," this person said.

"I actually gave one a glorious photoshoot."

But mostly, people focused on the sea lion's ~aesthetic.~ "Look. At. This. Seal. Stunt."
