I saw this outrageously cute photo on the twitter feed for http://seaotters.com.
Sorry I don’t know who the photographer is but I had to share!
This orphaned female Sea Otter pup was rescued off the side of a road by Alaska SeaLife Center volunteers on October 19, 2012, after efforts to locate her mother were unsuccessful and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service authorized the intervention.The pup was immediately transferred to its I.Sea.U. critical care unit in Seward, Alaska for emergency treatment. She was estimated to be approximately eight weeks old when found, and was deemed non-releasable by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service due to the maternal care required by young otters.
She has just been transferred from the Alaska SeaLife Center to its new permanent home at the Vancouver Aquarium, which will allow the pup to receive the ongoing care and companionship she needs.
See more cute photos and a video, and learn more about the efforts to take care of the pup at ZooBorns!
Aww, Katmai looks so little in that photo. I can’t wait to go back to Vancouver Aquarium to see her again!Source: zooborns.com
