Viral videos of animals generate empathy among users of social networks. Dogs and cats inspire tenderness when a special situation goes viral. But in this case, the protagonist is a sea lion, who has not taken away anything in a tourist complex in the Galapagos Islands, in Ecuador.
The video shows a black sea lion diving in the pool. He then swam across the pool and approached a deck chair where someone was resting. As the sea lion climbed the stairs, the man got up from the lounger and the animal took his place. The tourist pulled out his towel as the sea lion sat on the chair.
The video was shared by ViralHog.

A sea lion named Wendy and her puppy, Lulu, visit the hotel every day to swim in the pool. Tourists are advised to stay at least a few meters away from them and not to feed or touch them.
Sea lions spend some time sleeping on loungers by the pool, locals say.
