I'm not saying that making mudpies was a bad idea, but... you've got a little something... right there... on your face...
Who doesn't love a day at the beach swimming, building sandcastles, and getting dirty?
Crabs are one of those creatures that have some cute qualities, or are they really just sand-spiders with pincers? What do you squeeps think, are crabs creepy or cute?
... fortunately bath time isn't difficult or unenjoyable for sea lions, so this baby's squeetastic dirtiness is very much a temporary problem.
I hope you make it to the ocean and grow up to be a big, squee turtle one day!
