We know it’s not exactly an otter…but here’s a pretty sunset photo from the other day. (Of course, it counts because it’s a photo of the otters’ natural habitat.)

Dreamy, right?

Our next-door neighbors! We know Kit (that otter), pretty well. Isn’t she cute?


Thanks to the Monterey Bay Aquarium!

Happy Tuesday again, guys! (We’re noticing a pattern in our posting…)

Here’s another adorable baby otter video to get you through the week. 

"After being rescued when she was only a few days old, Otter 501 was bottle-fed a special formula to replace her mother’s milk for many weeks. She eventually started holding the bottle herself!"

(This photo has circulated around tumblr a ton, but it’s still one of our favorites.)

Do we have any fans out there in SoCal?

An otter was spotted the other day down in Laguna Beach, you guys should go look for him! Otters don’t commonly travel that far south.

There’s a link to the article if you click the picture.

Happy Tuesday, guys. Here’s another video of adorable baby otter 501 getting towel dried by one of her SORAC handlers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. This grooming is part of the rehabilitation process that will help teach 501 how to take care of herself and eventually survive on her own in the wild.

But right now, she’s content to just lay there and get her fur fluffed.

Alternate title: “Just keep sneezing, just keep sneezing…”

Katie took this photo with her iPhone, through a telescope. Epic, no?

Meet the playful heroine of the feature film Otter 501! She was rescued on the central coast of California after being separated from her mother, and with a little help from the Monterey Bay Aquarium she’ll hopefully become a wild otter again.
