Otters have earned the reputation of being one of the most adorable animals on the internet, and deservingly so. Even though otters are predators in the wild, they possess a natural talent for striking some of the cutest, funniest, and most photogenic poses for the camera.
There are quite a number of various otter types, with European otters, sea otters, and river otters probably being the most well-known ones. Otters are frolic by nature and like to play with their young ones in the water. Baby otters, who are called pups by the way, learn to swim when they are around two months old. It is always lots of fun watching them play with each other.
Otter fur helps them stay warm and dry underwater, and even contributes to their ability to float. Unfortunately, it is also considered highly valuable among people, and that’s why otters have been hunted for many centuries, leading to some species being in danger of extinction.
You have probably seen many photos of sea otters holding hands while sleeping. Not only does this look sweet, but it is also a means of survival. Otters hold hands and entangle themselves in seaweed to make sure they don’t drift away from the group in their sleep.
We have collected some of the best pictures of cute otters on the internet that are sure to bring a smile on your face and make you go “Aww, look at this little cutie!” Which one is your favorite?
