Poll: Name This Santa Cruz Sea Otter!

“Ran into an otter at the Santa Cruz wharf today and filmed it lounging, stretching, grooming, and just generally being adorable. It was hanging out on the same wooden platform as a bunch of sea lions. (Since it’s not my pet but rather an adorable stranger, I’ll leave it up to you to give him a cute name if you end up posting this.) -Melissa G.

Will you please check out Little Dude/Dudette, a resident of the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The Sea Otter exhibit is closed for the moment, so we can’t bring you a live look at the little guys- but here’s a live shot of Monterey Bay itself, and maybe a wild sea otter will swim into view.
