1. I'd be real leery of using both hands for scritches/belly rubs, as that may trigger an animal's defensive actions to ward off an attack. If that happens, you may end up without a hand to use for your own benefit. Unless you and it are long term buddies, be conservative in this regard.

  2. I second the thought that it's best to keep one hand in reserve, after all these are creatures in the wild. I laughed out loud as the camera panned around the diver to discover the sealion lying belly up with a happy expression.
    Calling them puppies is about right; did you see the one at the end about to hump his flipper?
