(TruthSeekerDaily)  During a trip to the National Zoo in Washington DC, a little girl made a new friend, one in which showed genuine care and concern for her.

A special sea lion and the girl had an instant connection and seemingly began a game of tag, with the girl leading the way.  As the playfulness carried on, the girl tumbled over, falling to the ground.  Suddenly, the seal stopped a came around to check on her to see if she was okay.

Luckily another zoo visitor caught the incredibly adorable event on film.  Although we don’t condemn wildlife being kept in captivity, this video demonstrates the real emotions that animals have for others.
