Watch this adorable moment of sea lions playing with their reflection in the ocean.
David and Alice Edgar, 32, were swimming with sea lions in Baird Bay, Australia, where a local sea lion colony is often found.
David, an underwater photographer, captured adorable photos and videos showing sea lions staring at themselves in the mirror that the couple has brought.
Alice, who is a diver, can be seen showing sea lions their reflections.
David explains: “Sea lions act like puppies – they take all your energy and love to play with you.
“Sea lions have amazing underwater acrobatics and can spin around you in seconds.
“I thought it would be fun to see how the sea lions would react when they saw their reflection in the mirror.
“I brought a hand mirror.
“The mirror self-recognition test is a behavioral technique designed to determine whether an animal is capable of self-recognition.
“Very few species have passed the test.
“They didn’t seem to recognize themselves, but they were clearly attracted to the shiny object and spent a lot of time coming in for a close-up.”
