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.
