And now for your daily dose of cute.

You know the old song about making new friends and keeping the old? Well, cameraman and diver Ben Burville made a new friend during a recent trip into the deep, and the unlikely friendship is turning into internet gold. While diving off the coast of Northumberland in the United Kingdom, Burville made contact with a grey seal, who seemed intrigued by the diver’s presence. The seal got curious and tentatively nibbled on Burville’s shoulder. Once he realized Burville wasn’t dinner, but a potential new friend, the seal then grabbed onto the wildlife photographer’s hand in its two little paws. Yes, Burville held hands with a seal and we all get to watch. This is why the internet was made.
