In recent years, thanks to handy video cameras and mobile phones, many unusual and intriguing interactions between animals and humans have been recorded.

This endearing video shows a sea lion jumping onto the back of a fishing boat. The video was captured off the coast of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, late last month, and shows the determined seal trailing behind the boat before leaping on board to collect a fish. After collecting the fish, the sea lion reverses back into the sea and swims away.

“Sea Lions often follow fishing boats in Cabo San Lucas in the hope of getting a free meal,” the filmer wrote online.
