This is the hilarious moment a sea lion chased its own tail like a dog in front of some amused children.
Joel Gardner, 26, filmed the funny scene taking place at the Washington DC National Zoo on May 16, 2016.
The sea lion began chasing its tail, spinning in circles as the kids encouraged it to keep going with hilarious hand gestures.
Joel said: “I thought it was funny, I was surprised because I didn’t know sea lions chase their tails like dogs.
“I also thought it was cute to watch the kids egging him on.”
