Bunny and seal make friends at a Cornish sanctuary

A bunny and a seal have struck up a firm friendship in Cornwall and 'sealed' it with a kiss!

(See what we did there?!)

Therapy rabbit, Mr Teddy Bun, is a frequent visitor at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary.

And now it would appear that one of the residents at Gweek is rather taken by him!

This is the moment seal pup, Aayla, tried to kiss the pet rabbit through the screen of her tank.

Posting the footage on social media, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, named Mr Teddy Bun 'Bunny of the Week'.

"Bunny of the week! Meet Mr Teddy Bun, a pet therapy volunteer who visits schools in and around Cornwall.

"He often visits us at the Sanctuary and is a firm favourite with the team and the seals!

"As you can see, Aayla is a big fan".
