If You See the Cabana Boy, I’d Like an Ouzo

Meet Argyro, a Mediterranean monk seal who’s made herself right at home on the beach at Samos Island in Greece. According to Reddit and this article (which is Greek to us), Argyro crawled up one day and flopped into a beach chair, which has now been, ahem, sealed off just for her use.




  1. Argyro knows the good life when she sees it.

  2. Nakey nakey. Too funny.

  3. This is why I love animals and their antics. One never knows what they may do next.

  4. I can see another reason they “sealed” the chair off…it must be pretty schtinky 🙂

    That is one smart seal.

    FYI, this is tagged as Sea Lion, but this is a Seal. Two different animals!

  6. It’s the Agean sea, he should be asking for an octopus appetizer.

  7. For lunch the sealio will have the lobster AND the cracked crab!

  8. @Saffron: Extra primo good!

  9. @phoenix: Catch of the day! Thanks, it’s corrected.

    Love the cheezy 60’s traveloge motiff music.

    This is a species super close to extinction as it was hunted relentlessly. Seeing one next to my Sunbed would be an honour, if a bit unexpected.
