This seal’s best friend is a tiny stuffed seal

A seal in Japan has quickly become the cutest animal on earth. All thanks to a stuffed animal.

The world has fallen in love with the seal, which lives in Monbetsu on Hokkaido. Last week, handlers at the aquarium where it lives gave it a small stuffed seal, and the pair have become inseparable. Sometimes they just hug, other times the live seal just gives a piggyback ride.

It’s just pure joy in a series of photos. There’s only thing we wish this had: A third seal. A full trio of seals would really make this perfect.

There we go.
