Joe Francis

I'm Renting a Sea Lion

To Play With Me

6/24/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Francis is spending his days down in Mexico with a brand new friend he can rent by the hour ... a 600 lb SEA LION  ... and TMZ's got the pics.

The "Girls Gone Wild" honcho tells TMZ ... he rents a Sea Lion named "Litibu" once a week from Vallarta Adventures to hang out with him and his GF Abbey Wilson at his casa near Puerta Vallarta. 

It's pretty incredible ... he says the 11-year-old mammal is so well trained he arrives via boat ... swims up to the beach ... walks to Joe's backyard ... and then dives straight into his pool.

Not only that, Joe says Litibu has a slew of tricks up his blubber ... he can do handstands, give kisses, stand and clap, roar on command and lets Joe and Abbey take rides on his back in the pool.

Our only request ... please no Sea Lion vs. Hot Naked Chicks tapes.

I wouldn't get in the water with that thing. There's no telling what kind of disease that thing is carrying. I mean Joe of course.

*Sigh* I thought he was still in jail some where...wishful thinking I guess.. All these stupid girls showed him they're goods for free to make him a very rich man. She what your boobies has enabled this guy to do with the money he made off you??? It is your fault if this sea lion dies of some sort of disease...

Although finds it cute,and amusing all living things are not here for his amusment! This idiot seems to need to buy a friend, and at some point the sea lion may decide Joes not his buddy and what a headline that'll be!

Joe Francis is such a weird looking dude. I, personally, do not find him attractive.

One can only hope hat the sea lion will attack Joe first and not his hot girlfriend; then it can hop out of the pool, walk down to the sea and wait for the producers of "Arrested Development" to call.

Didn't he just file for bankruptcy? Is renting a seal the best use of the money he has left?

How great would it be for the sea lion to seriously maul Joe, mate with his girlfriend, and then hop out of the pool and walk back to the ocean where he can wait to hear from the producers of "Arrested Development"

Joe Francis is going to prison for rape and assault. His whore girlfriend is on his payrole. She did videos for girls gone wild. Poor dumb country girl. Parents must be so proud of you shacking up with ugly lech and abuser.
