1 day old sea otter trying to sleep on mom

  1. My daughter's name is Autumn, and when I was holding her for the first time, I called her "My little Otter." My wife, exhausted from childbirth and totally against nicknames, immediately fell in love with it. 18 months later, everyone calls her Otter. She only hears "Autumn" when she's being cheeky. Haha.

  2. This is awesome!! Just watched the “Our Great National Parks” episode where they followed a Mom and her hours-old baby sea Otter in Monterey Bay.

  3. I found myself in Monterey Bay when I was on vacation and was like huh, an aquarium let's check it out. Then it blew my fucking mind. I was like man, 60 bucks to get in, it looks like any normal tiny 1850s industrial building that has been redesigned for tourist reasons. It looks like nothing from the outside but was easily the best aquarium that I've ever been to.

  4. Sea otters have the thickest fur of any animal. Their fur contains between 600,000 to 1,000,000 hair follicles per square inch. Unlike most other marine mammals, otters lack a blubber layer. Instead, they depend on their dense, water-resistant fur to provide insulation

  5. Human parents do this too sometimes. Evolutionary desire to care for the precious little offsprings runs deep, I guess, Which is why a clamp sleeping child has to be snuggle checked for breathing everyone once in a while!

  6. Be someone worthy of being held like that. Take pride in providing value. Take pride in your health. Take pride in your appearance.

  7. That’s how they are born. Unlike other aquatic mammals, otters are not born with blubber to keep them warm in the cold ocean, they are born with the most amount of hair (per square inch) of any mammal

  8. Thought the same, looks a bit bigger than 1 day old - compare the mom’s side - but don’t know

  9. Last night I watched a mini/episode documentary about Monterey Bay on a show called Our Great National Parks, which is on Netflix Canada. It is narrated by Obama. Has a good 15-20 minute segment about the sea otters there, specifically following the mom and baby. Was very well done show, obama has a great voice for narrating a nature show. Was surprised how smart and handy these fellas are. The mom got smart when looking for a safe place to stash the baby while she went and hunted, it floated just like they are in this video and went under a dock. It found a nice little dry hide a way hole under the dock and went off hunting. This thing found like 20 mussels/clams and let them all sit on its belly while it floated on its back eating them one by one. Think i'm gonna watch another episode tonight

  10. Adorable but this is not 1 day old by any means lol...newborn otters can fit in your palm...not to mention otters aren't giving birth to a baby 2/3s of their size

  11. I don't know anything, but fifteen seconds with Google suggests that sea otter newborns look different from river otter newborns. Is it possible that you are thinking of river otters?

  12. That is the baby at either one or two days old. Mom gave birth at the outdoor tidepool at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and they started filming it for social media immediately. Mom only stayed in the tidepool for a few days. The voice in the video is one of the PR people at the aquarium. Baby sea otters are mostly fur.

  13. Ooh I didn’t know there was an episode about it!! Thanks for the tip, love the Monterey Bay Aquarium/MBARI so much.

  14. Moms like, "Ah com'ere ya lil furry butt nugget!" ((SMOOCH-SMOOCH-SMOOCH)) KIDS LIKE, "C'mon ma I'm tryna sleep over he'"

  15. Going to Morro Bay and seeing wild otters just swimming around doing their thing was one of the greatest things

  16. False - Baby sea otters can and will always float (as long as mommy keeps it clean and fluffy). They can't dive until their fur changes when they're about 3 months old.

  17. That otter baby has to be older than one day. Just imagine what it would be like for mother otter to give a birth to a baby that big.

  18. I'm too skinny to float, but if I take a deep breath and puff out my belly, then I can float. Just thought this was relevant

  19. I know this is cute but a sad fact is that a sea otter mom will kill and throw their babies at predators to aurvive

  20. When sea otters are born they dont know how to swim! The soft thick bb fur is a life jacket, and until it sheds they cant even dive below the water, mom has to hunt and bring it back for the lassie

  21. Go to Morro Bay on the central coast of California and you can witness this in the wild. I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s life-changing to witness
