    Oh Captain, My Captain

    Imagine a sea lion squatting on your sailboat!!

    I wasn't sure where to put this story because although it initially made me smile, it turns out that the cause of the sea lion's behavior is domoic acid poisoning... (it is a toxin produced by algae...)

    Poor baby. I know the article says "toxin" but does that mean it will be fatal? I know they can be aggressive and quite nasty but that has to be one of the cutest animals there is.
