“Take 90 seconds from your busy day to watch and listen to Sammy Seal snoring/meditating in Stornoway Harbour,” suggests photographer John Dyer.

“It was almost as if it was acting, it was so cute,” adds Dyer (above). “It was amazing as it is quite a busy harbour.” Though Sammy's behavior has been described as “snoring”, it's definitely not the typical (and oh-so-annoying) drone emitted by sleeping spouses.

Instead, Sammy's prehensile nostrils flare open and closed in tune with his breathing, allowing only a regular “whoosh” of exhalation that seems to evoke an air of peaceful relaxation among human observers. No doubt Sammy's snuffling would make an ideal backing track for whatever's destined to succeed Goat Yoga... you read it here first, folks! (via Deadline
