Baby Seal Protects Its Friend From Rescuer

They say dynamite comes in small packages, but I think the same goes for bravery.

Actually, the smaller you are, the braver you have to be in this big and somewhat scary world of ours. This baby seal that protects its friend is the perfect example.

A man is seen running towards a massive flock of seals. But his intentions are good; he spotted a seal with a hook stuck in its mouth

He catches the seal in need of rescuing, but its seal friend doesn’t understand this and thinks he’s a threat.

Despite being so much smaller, the seal stands up for its friend and attempts an attack on the big scary human.

The Rescue

Like you can see in the video, seals hang out in really really large groups. These seal hang-outs are called colonies or rookeries.

How Big Are Seal Flocks?

Congregating in such large numbers is crucial for seals, especially during breeding season, as they provide a safe environment for raising pups and offer protection from predators.

Seal pups are remarkably small (and adorable) at birth, typically weighing between 20 to 40 pounds and measuring about 2 to 3 feet in length.

However, they are quick learners, with many species being able to swim and dive within hours of birth.

And like you can see in the clip, despite their small size they’re full of bravery and a big heart.
