Joshua Phillips was recently riding aboard a boat on Puget Sound off the coast of Washington when suddenly he spotted something unexpected — a pair of enormous sea lions casually doing the same.
While out for a swim, the enormous marine mammals decided to rest their flippers for a while by borrowing someone’s (comparatively small) vessel to lie on top of. The boat, as you will see, was not exactly designed to handle such gigantic passengers.
Although it isn’t clear who owns the vessel, or how long the pair hung out there, the unusual sighting puts the animals’ giant size into a brand new perspective.
A shocked Phillips captured the scene on camera:
Sea lions can tip the scales at a shocking 2,500 pounds and reach lengths of 11 feet — a fun fact to float your boat, or in that case, nearly sink it.
