Zoo Marriage Proposal: Sea Lion Helps Pop The Question (VIDEO)

One St. Louis couple owes their engagement to an extremely talented sea lion.

A woman was asked to participate in Robbie the sea lion's performance at the St. Louis Zoo last month by throwing a Frisbee for him to retrieve. But when Robbie brought it back to her, she realized he was trying to tell her something.

Watch the video above, posted to YouTube Wednesday, to see Robbie help pop the question.

Elephants, penguins and puppies have also lent a "paw" (or hoof or flipper) to humans wanting to propose.
