(WJLA) - A trip to the National Zoo turned into a big day for one Virginia family.

This sea lion took a liking to a Richmond family’s seven-year-old son, who has Asperger’s syndrome. His mother put the video on Youtube and tells us her son sometimes has a difficult time playing with other kids, but he certainly had no problems with his sea lion playmate!

The animal started swimming back and forth, following the boy’s every move.
