He is one of the elite of the American fighting forces and trained to the limits by the U.S. Navy. But he's not a Navy Seal, he's actually a sea lion.
He was being put through his paces along with the team from the Navy Marine Mammals squad, based in San Diego, in a day of anti-terrorism training exercises held at ports throughout California.
And he took less than a minute to find a fake mine under a pier while a fellow recruit, a dolphin, quickly located a terrorist lurking in the black water. Then another sea lion, using a device carried in its mouth, cuffed the pretend saboteur's ankle so authorities could reel him in.
