Pictures & Video of the world's cutest animal!
The Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary has a new otter pup that was abandoned by his mother. He’ll be treated and released back into the wild once he’s ready.
Ever wonder why sea otters float around with their paws up out of the water?
A sea otter’s thick coat does a phenomenal job of keeping water away from the skin so the animal can stay warm even in the chilly waters of Alaska. However, not all parts of a sea otter’s body has such dense fur, such as the nearly fur-free paws. In order to conserve heat, sea otters keep as much of their body as dry as they can, and this includes keeping their sensitive paws up out of the water as much as possible. Even when a sea otter resting at the surface turns over onto its belly, it will hold those front paws up to keep them out of the chilly water.
Is there anything better than otter babies? Nope! The Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, LA just welcomed 2 female otters.

One of the best things about the Monterey Bay Aquarium is that after you see all of the incredible exhibits you can still walk outside and see wild sea otters floating around. If you’ve never been to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, you should go. It’s one of my favorite aquariums in the world!
