A sea lion stops traffic as it waddles across a busy road in southern Brazil.

The half-tonne creature crawled out of the water in the beach resort of Balneario Camboriu in the southern state of Santa Catarina, then found its way onto the town's main boulevard.

Traffic ground to a halt for 20 minutes as the three-metre long sea lion slid made its way across the busy road.

It may have been the animal's first foray onto a main road, but it did obey the law by using a zebra crossing to make its way across the street.

Police and firefighters threw water over the sea lion to keep it wet until it returned to the water an hour and a half later.
