Don’t worry, he’s just being sealy!

This sea lion clearly decided to try to bite off more than he could chew – as he made a beeline for this unfortunate diver’s arm.

William Drumm, 31, photographer captured the moment his friend Peter Falk was set upon by the playful sea lions – who had a good go at nibbling his arms through his rubbery diving suit.

William said: “Steller Sea Lions aggregate at Hornby Island, Canada, in February anticipating the upcoming herring spawn in the surrounding waters.

“While waiting for the spawn the sea lions have plenty of free time on their flippers, which they sometimes use to pester divers.

“One decided to see if he could nibble on my friend’s arm. I’m not sure he found it funny at first, I think he was a bit scared and shocked but there was no way the sea lion was going to hurt him, they are just extremely playful.”
