This is Nellie the Otter who lives at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, WA, and she is a cup stacking master! It just goes to show how wickedly clever these animals are!

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.
