I can't resist posting this picture here as well as on the "Animals we Share Our Lives With" thread.



This was at the Humboldt County Fair. What a big operation it must be to train, keep, and transport these sea lions. They've got the "Your picture with the animals" thing down pat. You give them $10-$25 (depending on desired photo size), the sea lions freeze in the pose above, they take the picture, and in a minute hand you the finished result.

It was worth it just for the fun of having a 250 pound sea lion leaning down on my shoulder. It was especially fun since I see these animals in the ocean all the time.

Al, you should have said it was an unplanned photo bomb!

I'm the luckiest guy! Knock on wood, they get along amazingly, we have a four bedroom house and they all want to sleep in the same room, and tonight one climbed into her big sisters bed for a sleepover. Easiest, nicest kids. Guess I should show DW so you know who they get their looks from....
