Why did the elephant seal cross the road? To get to the other tide!

We've all heard of a zebra crossing - but have you ever seen an elephant seal crossing?

Shoppers in Brazil were amazed to see a massive elephant seal hit the busy high street on Saturday.

The seal waddled out of the ocean and into the city of Balneario Camboriu where it went for a walk - even using the proper crossings.

Cars were blocked for 20 minutes whilst police officers splashed water on the seal to keep it wet.

After about an hour and a half in the city, the seal returned on the sea.
