This seal just can’t stop hugging its toy version of itself

Seals are already effin’ adorable as they are, but do you know what could be cuter? A seal hugging a ‘mini me’ doll!

Case in point: this seal from Mombetsu Land in Japan’s Hokkaido prefecture. Recently, the sea creature was handed a plush seal doll of itself by the zoo staff.

The two hit it off right away, falling into each other’s arms (or should I say flippers) and hugging it out. At times, the soft toy even goes on piggyback rides on its new friend!

As for the other seals? They got their own stuffed toys too – and the reactions were pretty much the same!

While freeing the seals from captivity would be the best way to bring them happiness, we can’t help but smile a bit after seeing the animals make new BFFs.

If you’d like to help in seal conservation efforts, you can head on over to the WWF website to find out how.
