When she's not sniffing and foraging for food for her young'un, this amazing pig mama is offering up her amazing nose for a different kind of excellent utility.
This lovely video documents the first exam ever for Seattle Aquarium's latest otter pup. Its mother Aniak was trained to bring the pup to the biologists, thanks to patience on the biologists' part and a decent amount of seafood-as-positive reinforcement.
Suffice to say, everything about this video is unbearably squee.
Kelly Wolfe says: "Showgun snuggling with her squee-worthy two-week-old kitten!"
Is Showgun's name a pun on the word Shogun? Regardless of my linguistic curiosities, I think she definitely deserves a snuggle for being the mother to such a lovely little ball of fluff and squee!
