Is there anything better than an otter trying to make you smile?
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.
This video tells the story of two baby otters, Molalla and Zigzag, and how they learned to swim from their mother, Tilly. Young Ziggy was a little behind compared to Molalla, but now that he's caught up, he loves to swim away from his mother.
