At the end of January, a wild sea otter and her pup drifted into Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Great Tide Pool, an exhibit that is open to the bay. Mom and pup floated around the pool for a day, generating approximately two hundred kajillion photos and many broken Cute Meters. Truly, there is no animal on this planet more adorable than a baby sea otter. Not even a kitten.
You can find more photos here, but if you want a concentrated dose of cute, watch this video. It’s only 37 seconds long, because if the aquarium staff made it longer than that, hearts would actually pop.
