Hungry Sea Lion Hilariously Demands Some Fish While Hitching a Free Ride on the Back of a Boat

Hungry Sea Lion Hitches Ride on Boat for Fish

It appears that the waters of Cabo San Lucas in Baja, California are filled with some very hungry sea lions who will ask boaters for food while hitching a ride on back. Normally these pinnipeds are rather polite about it, even to the point where a sneaky pelican can spirit away with the goods. At other times, however the sea lions can be incredibly demanding as they hitch a free ride on with their mouths wide open hilariously expecting a snack of some sort to be tossed right on in.

We were out on a boat fishing for the day when a sea lion came up to us and wanted some fish.
