Seals are definitely one of my all-time fave aquatic animals. Every time I see them at the zoo or aquarium, I have to be physically dragged away from the exhibit, lest I decide to camp out for the night. If you show me a picture of a baby seal, I will literally scream in agony over the sheer unbearable cuteness. If it’s a video, I’ll enter cardiac arrest. Because baby seals are precious, innocent little puffs of heaven on earth. Their very existence demands adoration.

Step aside sandwiches, because tuna salad has a new BFF: onigiri. Seriously guys, rice + tuna salad is like a match made in heaven. The rice acts as the perfect vessel for sealing in all that creamy tuna goodness (hello mess-free lunch!), and the very inner layer of rice becomes decadently moist and creamy from the mayo – much better than eating soggy white bread, in my opinion.

Fun fact: little grade 2 me wanted to be a paleontologist when she grew up. Needless to say, that goal didn’t exactly pan out – Jurassic Park kind of scared me away from the profession. However, I think I just may have taken a step closer to my grade 2 occupational dreams with this bento box, which combines my dormant love of dinosaurs with my present day love for Pusheen the Cat. Say hello to the friendly feline herbivore “Pusheenosaurus” (AKA Dinosaur Pusheen), a rare species of dinosaur who’s ready to fill your next bento box with ridiculous, lethal levels of cuteness.
