A turtle and a seal make an unlikely pair of friends as they cling together underwater. The playful monk seal sensed the green turtle was in distress and joined it for 20 minutes to hug it.

The three-year-old seal placed its flippers around the turtle while lying on top of it like it was cuddling it. This cute interaction was caught by photographer Beat Korner, 62, while he was underwater by Olowalu Beach in Hawaii, USA.
