Sea lion seems concerned about little girl

Sea Lion 'Worried' About Little Girl

Ariel Myren was enjoying a day out at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C., when she spotted a friendly sea lion who seemed to be following and playing with a little girl.

The sea lion was in constant motion as it zoomed after the little girl -- until she took a tumble. When the little girl fell, the sea lion stopped play-acting and froze as it watched the girl on the floor. It seemed like the creature was a bit concerned about her -- or maybe it was just impatient to start the game again. Clumsy humans with their bothersome feet!

Either way, the sea lion's reaction has gotten lots of attention ... and well over 1 million views.

These intelligent creatures such as gorillas are kinder to us than we are to them. Are you listening, Seaworld?

Humans are the perfect parasites to this world.
We multiply, consume and destroy as fast as we can.

i think creatures are so much more intelligent and emotional than most think. i've seen entirely tender reactions from so many. dogs and cats amaze me, but look at what they are learning about wild animals and their interactions with humans. i wonder if some day they will stand as judges to us and how we have treated them?

it's a real toss up who are the dumb animal's, think about all the horrible heartless murderous human beings do on a daily basis, wild animal's will only kill for food, and domestic animal's are what their owner's make them, I'll take animal's over people any day.

Amazing reaction! Clearly the seal reacted to the girl's fall and was curious to see what was going on!

We don't give dumb animals enough credit for their intelligence.

We have contaminated our species by allowing everyone that is born to survive and reproduce. Wild animals always have the advantage of survival of the fittest and smartest. Not saying what we do is a bad thing but how many people just wouldn't make it if it wasn't for modern technology in food cultivation and medicine? Its ironic the trait that has helped thrive and grow is also one of our biggest down falls at this point?

The sea lion was thinking "lunch"…. She probably looked like a wounded animal.
