This little video has been making the rounds on social media in recent days after being posted to Facebook by China's state-run news outlet, People's Daily. Admittedly, there's no context behind what appears to be a short clip of a baby seal - but that hardly detracts from the enjoyment of its big reveal.
Spoiler: It's not seal.
This pup's resemblance to a seal really is uncanny, but it shouldn't be surprising. After all, seals are basically just dog mermaids.
