those little critters have better volleyball skills than I ever had. They’re cuter too.

Blatant lift on that near-court sea lion, but no call.

God, the referee quality you get in aquatic mammal volleyball is shit.

Those seals had some serious focus, man. Can seals have fun in captivity?
I know they have fun in the wild, mostly by ripping apart fish and seagulls…

Yea, I don’t think they play volleyball in the wild. I hope they’re treated well.


#6

If sea lions can breed in captivity, then they can have also fun- that’s my uninformed guess. That doesn’t mean it’s a good idea, though.

Sea lions. Seals don’t have the rotating hips and strong front flippers necessary to be very competitive in most land sports. Ever try playing dodgeball against a true seal? It’s like shooting fish in a barrel.
