Sea Lion Takes Underwater Selfies At Long Beach Aquarium


The art of taking a “selfie” is no longer just for humans. Now, sea mammals are able to join in on the fun.

Hugh Ryono, who is a trainer at the Aquarium of the Pacific, recently constructed a selfie stick for sea lions to use underwater.

“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 you a ‘you are there’ feel to their shots,” Hugh wrote in the aquarium’s online blog.
