This young California sea lion just couldn’t get enough play time with this mooring buoy. He found great joy in grabbing the buoy and dragging it down as deep as he could before releasing it. When he released it, he would then race it back to the surface. This buoy seemed to provide him with endless entertainment as he showed off his skills to me.
