Cutest baby seal enjoying the snowy banks of Lake Baikal

Hi, I’m a seal pup! I live at Lake Baikal in Siberia. I wish all RBTH readers a happy, cheerful and joyful New Year!
Today in Russia is a time for sleeping and recovering after the fun-filled festivities.
As for me, I’m a seal pup and live at Lake Baikal, the largest freshwater reservoir in the world. The lake covers an area about the size of Belgium.
It's cold and snowy here, but that's what I like.
I'm cute and easily frightened, so, dear photographer, it’s a rare treat to take a snapshot of me.
I’ll stay here lying in the snow while you watch a video on how to cook honey cake for New Year. Let 2016 be as sweet and carefree as me!
