He's rather flippant about his talents.
Instead of balancing a ball on his nose, like the average seal, this fellow nonchalantly balances his considerable weight on one for a nap.
The ball is more accurately a bright pink buoy, in the Fal Estuary in Cornwall, where the seal can often be seen resting his weary flippers at night.
Balancing act: The seal can often be found settling down for the night on this mooring buoy
One resident whose house overlooks the spot off Restronguet, said: 'The seal comes up the river at dusk and performs leaps around the buoy. It then pops up on to it, spins it round a bit before shooting off. Eventually it flips back up on to the buoy where it spends the night.
'It's there most mornings when we have our breakfast.'
Laura Ward from the National Seal Sanctuary added: 'Seals do the funniest things. We have found pups in seaside public toilets and even one in the lighthouse at Port Isaac.
'That said, we have never before heard of one that chooses to sleep on a mooring buoy.'
