The seals here are pretty dumb, they exist to feed sharks. Sea lions are more like dogs and could be taught to steal things from divers. The wild ones already interact with humans almost like a tame animal.

I saw a quite a few on an island off the coast of my country earlier this year. The island has two separate populations, one composed of grey seals not far from the island's village and another composed of harbour seals who live near an old ruined kelp house on the far side of the island. I got a few photos of them while I was there but this one's my favourite.

FAKE SEAL ALERT
>>
Man, I want a seal so bad. I would like to just take one from the beach, but the ones by me are elephant seals and there's no way I could actually take care of one of those. I'd need some sort of smaller seal, but that would probably require me to pay someone to steal it for me. I really don't want to rip a seal pup away from it's mom either.

I live near the coast in socal which is infested with seals and sea lions. The sea lions are especially friendly and will swim circles around me and bark a lot when I'm out in the ocean. They also walk up the cliff to the sidewalk to sunbathe and tourists take pictures with them. They have no fear of people so it's a strange experience compared to being around wild land animals, you're just another ocean enjoyer as far as the sea lions are concerned.

Hey, looks like La Jolla. I used to love going down there and seeing those guys. Really miss it now that I've moved. You could get pretty close to them out of the water too before they got grumpy and tried to bite you. Seals were usually always more friendly and passive than the sea lions too.

Yeah, that's down at the cove. I'll miss it too, planning to move next year. Not sure if you ever saw the leopard sharks around there, they hang out a mile or two north of the cove to raise their pups. During that season there are hundreds of them in water shallow enough to wade in where it's warm, just sharks everywhere when you look underwater.

I would assume they would be quite greasy, due to being cold adapted...
