A video taken by Ocean State Outfitters shows these sea duck hunters surprised by a friendly seal. The seal wastes little time in investigating the strange floating craft, and hops aboard to give one of the waterfowlers a few love bites. In the end, it was probably playing up its cuteness factor for a free meal. Seals have been known to eat ducks when they have the opportunity, although they rarely give hunters much competition. This specimen seems to just enjoy its time in front of a camera lens.

Kayakers, anglers, and boaters have also noticed that seals will often board their craft if there is a shark about, so these duck hunters may have unknowingly saved this inquisitive creature.
