This seal was given a stuffed animal version of himself and he can’t stop hugging it. According to Bored Panda, the seal lives and performs at Mombetsu Land, an attraction in Japan’s Hokkaido district.
The zoo staff gave this adorable seal his own seal plushie and now the two are inseparable.
The seal won’t stop hugging his plushie. The endearing duo just snuggles and cuddles all day together in the snow.
The seal even provides his new stuffed animal seal-back rides wherever he goes.
Their play dates are filled with cuteness overload.
Perhaps the seal is in need of some company.
Or maybe he may think that it’s a baby seal in need of guidance and protection.
Whatever the reasons may be, this story of the seal duo is way too cute to not be shared with your fellow animal lovers!
