Hugh's Aquarium Views Video Number 14

The selfie stick I made just for fun has become quite an enrichment toy for the Aquarium of the Pacific’s sea lions, especially Milo. The sea lion selfie stick is such a favorite of Milo’s that he’ll even steal it away from his buddy Harpo just to have more time with it. Milo and I have spent the summer coming up with new ways for him to play with the GoPro on a stick. Selfie spins, selfie leaps and selfie dives are just some of the ways this intelligent sea lion has been entertained by HIS toy.

Who knew a sea lion could have so much fun taking a selfie?

Check out the video of Milo’s Selfie Stick Summer.

Who needs an aerial drone when you have a sea lion selfie stick? The GoPro captures an aerial view of me and Harpo while being thrown into the water for a retrieval behavior. Harpo's buddy Milo would intercept the stick before he could reach it.
