Do you think animals and children have a special bond?

In a video posted to YouTube, a little girl catches the attention of a sweet and playful sea lion at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington D.C.

The child runs back and forth along the tank as the sea lion swims beside her. But then — she trips and falls to the ground and the sea lion has a priceless reaction.

Watch, above.
