The Virginia Aquarium is inviting you to help name its newly adopted male Otter pup. The cute creature was found alone near St. George, S.C., apparently abandoned by his mother and only days old. During the rescue and in subsequent stabilization period, he became dependent upon human care, so he was deemed unable to be released into the wild. He is now under the watchful care of Virginia Aquarists and thriving.
Prepare for your heart to explode.
An abandoned, 5-week-old sea otter pup was recently rescued in California, fattened up at a local aquarium, and is currently undergoing rehabilitation at Shedd's Abbott Oceanarium in Chicago.
She doesn't have a name yet - their currently referring to her as "Pup 681" - but, how about we just call her "Mine."
Look at this face!
