Here’s a little pick-me-up for your Monday, if you love animals and cute things (which you do). It’s a baby sea otter drinking milk from a syringe. Tiny. Baby. Sea. Otter.
How cute is that? With the little squeaks and the little hands and the little mouth? SO. CUTE.
If you weren’t already aware, otters are basically the cutest little things in the entire animal kingdom. So cute that they hold hands while they’re resting or sleeping so they don’t drift away from one another (otters are very social creatures). They have the thickest fur of any mammal, and because of this were hunted to the point of endangerment. While they’re still considered endangered, they have been able to restore a large part of their population.
So there’s some sea otter facts you can keep in your bag of tricks to show off at your next holiday gathering. Your family will be extremely impressed by your knowledge.
Here. Have another otter picture before you go:
