Otter Love



Awww... I especially love 1:15 onwards!

People say "puppy love"; I say "otter love".


Some nuggets of information about sea otters holding hands

When these cute little sea otters are not grooming or eating, they sleep. To prevent themselves from drifting too far off, they sometimes wrap themselves up in kelp like a blanket or even “hold hands”.

I was searching for some answers over the Internet on why sea otters hold hands and I found a list of answers from this random guy. I was pretty tickled by two of his answers:

"those otters were trying to make another otter jealous in the vicinity"

"otters are notorious for doing very cute things in front of people, especially those with cameras ... a nickname for the otter is attention whore"

    Bibi,
    Otters are really cute and those sea otters are one of the top 10 animals to be able to use tools. They use rocks to knock their clams out. Too intelligent! Welcome back to the blogging world.

    Rick,
    "Otterly" is a great pun.

    Oh, better not speak too soon. You might just see spoilt kids from me, entirely opposite from what I've always envisioned my future kids to be.
