It was quite the catch... and not just for the fishermen who had caught two enormous dorado, but for one plucky seal.
It all happened in the blink of an eye as the friends were posing for the cameras with their prized catch in Cabo San Lucas off the coast of Baja California Sur.
Just as the duo are striking a pose and presumably thinking whether they'd like it served pan-seated or filleted for lunch, the sea lion decided he could wait no longer.
Apparently, the sea lion called Pancho, is a regular down by the docks in Cabo.
Still, there is a complete look or surprise on the fisherman's face.
Though take a closer look at the pelican in background... it looks as though he might have been in on the whole thing!
