An unexpected guest visits a San Diego seafood restaurant


The Marine Room, a seafood restaurant in San Diego, received an unexpected guest on the morning of February 4 – a sea lion pup who wandered in and casually took a seat as if it was waiting to be served.

Executive Chef Bernard Guillas snapped these photos and posted them to his Facebook page.

According to a Reuters article, the eight-month-old pup entered the restaurant through a door left open by a cleaning crew, and was malnourished at only 20 pounds, which is less than half the normal size for its age.

A Sea World San Diego team was later called to remove the animal from the premises and care for it.
