This sea lion enchanted by a woman's phone might be the most hypnotic thing you'll see all day

And you thought humans were obsessed with their phones.

The world we live in is obsessed with phones, but this sea lion proves that’s not a uniquely human trait.

The acrobatic sea mammal at the Saint Louis Zoo in Missouri seemed absolutely enchanted by the spectator’s phone, making some wonderful shapes in the water as it followed the tech around.

It’s like a beautiful screensaver…

“Please, I just want to check my Twitter mentions.”

Side to side and up and down the sea lion goes, with a couple of back flips thrown in for good measure.
