April 27 (UPI) -- A pair of sea lions were filmed jumping up on the back of a moving boat in Mexico to demand a tribute of fish from the boaters.

The video shows the sea lions clinging to the back of the boat Monday in Cabo San Lucas and refusing to budge until the fishermen aboard the vessel reward them with fish.

"The first huge male sea lion has hauled himself up onto the boat and meets looks of disbelief from the people onboard before they decide to reward his efforts with some fish," the filmer wrote online. "After he's had his fill and jumped off another smaller sea lion then decides to try her luck."

The larger sea lion may have been Pancho, a sea lion known to locals for his tendency to jump on boats and demand fish.
