One seal had an extremely cute encounter with a butterfly while at the Oregon Zoo.

The adorable meet-and-greet was captured on video by the zoo’s dive safety officer, Micah Reese and shared to the zoo’s Just For Fauna Facebook page . The page regularly posts videos of the zoo’s resident animals just being themselves.

According to the zoo, Kaya, the seal captured in the video, is a three-year-old pacific harbor seal and has lived at the zoo since 2015.

The zoo says that the playful game of chase happened in the Stellar Cove area.
