    Awwwww… so cute!
    BTW, if you ever get a chance to go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, GO. It’s awesome, with all kinds of sea life and a shark and ray petting pool (they’re babeh sharks, and quite harmless and cute) and an incredible aquarium with some of the hugest, most amazing fish I’ve ever seen…

    [and what the heck, while we’re at it, throw in an “S” too — Ed.]

  20. I used to work at a zoo, and surprisingly one of the most dangerous animals there is the otter. They’re very cute but can do some fast shredding damage to anyone within reach. I was allowed to handle live wolves and poisonous snakes, but never dared get near these unpredictable brutes!

  21. leah b. says:

    I wish I could lay around in water all day and play with my toys, like this here bebeh. Its so hot and I don’t look that good in my swimsuit, a few might faint.

  22. Pomping de irons!

  23. Theo, what’re you tryin’ to say? OtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterzOtterz???
    It’s otterly TERRIFIC!

  24. This is otterly adorable and i would like to point out the otter lack of plentiful otter picture.

    the percentage of otter pictures is otterly too low on CO.

    Such a great personalities!

  26. OhhhhhhKayyyyyy, if they start holding hands, it’s all over for moi…. *klunk*

  27. darkshines says:

    Otters mean a lot to me. The first date I ever had with my boyfriend was at the Aquarium, and we “awwwed” over the otters for hours. It was the same day the otters holding hands video came out 🙂 So we <3 otters....

  28. Darkshines, that’s so sweeeeeeet!

  29. Suda Nim says:

    Thanks to this week’s New York Times Sunday crossword, I now know that the adjectival form of “otter” is “lutrine,” just as “wolf” –> “lupine.”

    This has been your otterly useless fact of the day.


  31. Aww, that brought back some nice memories – I went there on my honeymoon (and … yes … I think my husband was there too)! What a neat place! Those otters are kewl.

  32. wheeeee it looks like it’s lifting weights

  33. MilkyWei says:

    uber cute! By the aquarium, there’s a shop that sells t-shirts and sweaters with the “Harry Otter” logo!

    It’s a fuzzy otter with glasses, and lightning bolt on the forehead and all 😀

  34. MissAntithesis says:

    Awwww, I miss Monterey! Those little guys were the BEST.

  35. you otter go to the monterey bay aquarium and your husband otter too.

  36. Tina Rhea says:

    Some GOOD environmental news (and we’ll take all we can get) about otters: they’re increasing in Britain now that some pesticides have been restricted.


  37. That otter looks a little old to still be playing with a rattle. But seriously, I’ve heard many stories about aquarium sea otters that love to play with specific toys. I think it comes from their attachment to rocks that they use to break open clams and crabs. Asian otters usually have a favorite rock or pebble that they like to play with. Otters rule!

  38. Ok, I give up – I couldn’t just lurk.


  39. Otters do, indeed, rule; and thank you CO for putting me on to what I think is going to be the videostream that stops me doing anything useful *this* summer (see: summer: last: Panda: Butterstick: anerabible).

    We in Britain love otters. Some idiots think that otters are purely cosmetic, and don’t bring tangible benifits to the local ecosystem. These people are fools. Fellow Brits: how much of an acre would *you* visit regularly, with your environmental vigilance and your sweet sweet tourist honey-money, if you knew *these* swimmy little flopsicles of cuteness lived there? Don’t tell me, tell your council’s urban planning committee.

    I have come down off my soapbox now.

    It was nice up there. You could see their CUTE CUTE BELLLLLLLLEHS!!!!!!!, for one thing.
