This is 19-year-old Tyriq "Ty" Bagnerise. He lives in California.
The teen told BuzzFeed News that last Friday night he went to the beach with three friends.
While there, they saw a sea lion and chilled near it for about an hour. "It was really nice," Ty said.
"He was sniffing me and everything," he said. "He gave me a kiss when I took a selfie with it."
