Hawaiian Monk Seal live only in Hawaii. Smart! For another pic, scroll down please.
While most members of this endangered species live out on remote atolls and islands far from people,
there is always the occassional trouble-maker like N03 here who prefers hanging out with humans.
This one pulled right up on a crowded beach in the middle of hundreds of tourists and fell asleep.
Biologists or lifeguards have to come over to rope it off so people don't walk right up to it.
