Oh, to be a newborn sea lion.

This handsome critter was born a week ago at the Marineland animal exhibition park in Antibes, France, and he's already lapping up the benefits of spending summer in the south of France.

On Friday, the baby sea lion joined his mom for a little R&R in the sun, working on his tan while Mom preferred to take a dip. But her babe was never far from her mind, or sight, and her little one seemed as equally pleased with the attention as his surroundings.

Enjoy it while it lasts, mama sea lion: It's only a matter of time until your baby wants his independence.
