SEATTLE - Those new hybrid cars are indeed a hot seller, and the interest appears not to be restricted to the human species.

A sea lion wandered out of Elliott Bay around lunchtime Wednesday and decided to park itself atop a Toyota Prius in the parking lot of Salty's Restaurant in West Seattle.

While amused onlookers snapped some photos of the strange sight, Tim O'Brien, the restaurant's sommelier, managed to coax the lion off the roof and back into the water (no word if it took a merlot or chardonnay to entice the lion to take notice.)

The car did suffer a few dents to the roof -- sea lions can weigh between 400-600 pounds -- but otherwise it was just your unusual lunchtime distraction.

I say he chose the Prius cause his slippery butt couldn't get ontop of the new beetle that was on the other side of the yellow van :p

I saw this on the news last night and this morning. The big sea lion left a big dent on the roof. I also see, that the car has Oregon plates. Maybe I'll see it at a body shop somewhere? ;)
