Sea Lions are generally known to be friendly and often compared to dogs in terms of their temperament and friendliness.
While kayak fishing in the pacific ocean off the Sonoma coast a kayaker was attacked/visited by a rather inquisitive sea lion. The kayakers were startled initially by an approaching sea loin that circled around the kayak.
The sea lion also appeared to be biting the kayak. Shortly thereafter, to everyone’s surprise, the sea lion began to try to launch itself onto the kayak. Naturally the kayaker was startled and not sure about the intentions of the sea lion. After many failed attempts the sea lion succeeded at entering the kayak.
Do you think the sea lion was trying to attack the kayaker as the video suggests?
