Hmmm... useless without pictures of the paintings. While I don't doubt that they are better than most modern art, I would love to see some to see if the animals are actually trying to paint something they see or doing anything other than randomly splattering paint on the canvas.

Sea lions are cool creatures, though.

If that's true, it's huge. Representational art is not something a species just randomly comes up with one day.

Just smiling and noddding: There is a picture. :) It is tiny, but pretty cool.

The only clear picture is the fin print. I want to see some examples of the paint-brush paintings, just to see if there is any sense of pattern or visualization in them. Still, even if they are random crap, they are probably better than, say, Jackson Pollock, and I have more respect for the artists in this case. ;)

That first pic sooooo does not look like he's painting at first glance.

It's clear Max is doing it just to try and get into Ashley's pants. At least that's why I would do it. If I was a sea lion. And someone stuck a paint brush in my mouth. Sea lions love blondes.

THAT SECOND PIC IS JUST SICK! And the blood splatter is WAY over the top- NOT family-friendly. Listen, You NRA lovin', gun-totin', pit bull killin',republican votin' Bush lovers AND you DemoEnviro wackmafia nutjobs, you need to stop covertly killing these Lions because you "think" they hurt salmon, or crap in your precious Columbia river(you Rooster-Rock swingin', shingle-wieldin' sweat-moles). My young children, when told that sea lion had just been "murdered",gunned down in it's prime, were severely traumatized. Gee, Thanks, Tobias. And Thanks ALOT Cindy Hanson, for capturing the needless and gratuitous violence


10/10 (based on results in comments) - would like to see troll again.

Wierd, that flipper print in the second pic looks like some sort of evolved 4 legged giant lobster. Maybe this sea lion is warning us.

/I for one welcome our new lobster overlords

talulahgosh: me too

Let me clarify. I know that DeGroot can be a real Flemish/Dutch name. It's just that I didn't think there were DeGroots teaching human beahvior to animals trying to modify the parameters of the Valenzetti equation.

It's the Cloverfield monster.
