"Yuki" the ringed seal at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan has become a hot topic on social media for being "too roly poly."
Yuki's 1 meter length and weight of 50 kilograms is standard, according to the aquarium, although her head is considered rather small. The chubby effect comes from her pulling in her head to stop her neck from feeling the chill!
One Twitter user@96Wr5 joked: "Super cute! It's like a bun. The minute I clocked eyes on her I couldn't stop laughing."
