A large elephant seal frustrated motorists in Brazil this week when it took a holiday from its usual aquatic life and wandered the streets of Balneario Camboriu. The creature stopped traffic on a busy street for more than an hour as it made its way across a crosswalk. The seal may have raised the ire of drivers, but it delighted tourists and onlookers who formed a snap-happy crowd at a respectful distance from the animal and rescue staff splashed water on the animal to keep it from drying out or overheating. After several hours of sightseeing, the seal made its way back to the sea and entered the water under its own steam.
