Some “warmth” on this very chilly day

Well it might not be the same kind of “warmth” that a good sunny summer day might bring, but in the spirit of smiling and “awwing” over cute animals, I bring you “Baby Otter Tours Scotland in a Mailbag

This little girl goes through 15 British Pounds ($22 US dollars or so) of salmon each DAY!  But I still bet her friends dont tell her to watch it or that Omega-3 will go straight to her furry little hips....

I have a soft spot for these awesome critters anyways (come on, they crack open clams on their bellies and eat them up while floating peacefully on their backs in the water!) but these pictures and the story itself certainly managed to bring a bit of that “humans can be pretty awesome” warmth to my heart.  Which is great on either icy stormy North East is Getting More Snow type winter days or after a long bout of blowing your “sanity watchers points” on inane comments on the Internet.

  1. *Dies of cute*

    April, I think you’ll find this is a river otter rather than the sea variety, (which are the ones that float on their backs and crack clams). But both types are equally and utterly adorable in my book.

  2. OMG! OTTER! *DIES OF CUTE*

    OMGWTF?! Since when does omega-3 make people fat? That’s supposed to be the miracle component of food that does everything from make hair shinier to making bellies smaller. Why would someone even put a tagline like that on such a cute picture.

    Media people need to go back to school and re-take their classes on ethics and good writing. The people who boss those people around need some correction of their own.

    But LOOK! OTTER!

  3. :blush: That was me with the caption, trying to be smarmy! Guess it worked too well 😉

    And I will now add “River Otters” to my list of amazingly cute and still wicked awesome critters 😀

  4. Awwwww I LOVE otters! I’ve never seen a baby one before though – they’re even more ridiculously cute than the adult ones! Ever seen them at feeding time at the zoo? Adorable!

    And on the adorable baby animals subject… how about that pygmy hippo??

    As soon as someone figures out how to genetically engineer animals to stay babies, I’m going to have to buy some serious acreage!
