Our film is about a real sea otter pup who wouldn’t have survived without the Monterey Bay Aquarium Sea Otter Research and Conservation program. Donate here to save a life: http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/cr/otter501/

Ever wonder what sea otters do during winter storms? Many of them seek out sheltered coves or wrap themselves in kelp. However, otter moms have been known to swim in a large circular pattern, speedily swimming upwind and slowly coasting downwind allowing the pup to nurse and catch a few zz’s on the smooth ride back.

‎”And look, he’s still at it with that damned rock. Just go to Home Depot, get a Black and Decker!”

Our hero, Randall (of Honey Badger fame), made this hilarious video about the darling sea otter, entirely comprised of footage we shot around the Monterey Peninsula. A clip of this is even featured in the film!

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!"
