Only one day into this world, and this baby sea otter is all tuckered out. It really must be physically demanding as you float around and look adorable. Sounds like the hardest job in the world. We’re fairly certain that the Monterey Bay Aquarium has found the recipe for cuteness success, and it clearly involves otters.
As it turns out, there’s a bit of a special story here. While the baby was born in the “Great Tide Pool” at the aquarium, his mom is actually a wild Californian sea otter that had sought refuge in the aquarium’s pool to protect herself from other animals, and the cold and stormy days of the coast. As repayment, she gave us one of the cutest videos of all time.
