There are plenty of adorable animal-human interaction videos online, but nearly all of them are with professionally trained animals, or pets. 

Rarely do you see an authentic magical event in nature, like when a koala swam up to a canoe team, wanting to be picked up.

This video featured by SayOMG is another case of a person making a connection with a wild animal. While deep sea diving, cameraman and British doctor Ben Burville met a friendly seal underwater. How friendly was it? Let’s just say, they held hands! 

Can we get some Disney writers over here ASAP?!
