Otter Mom Is Early Contender For Mom Of The Year

Can you make it through this video without saying “Awww”?

Per the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s YouTube channel:

“What happens when a wild sea otter mom and pup spend the afternoon in the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Great Tide Pool? It’s a case of cute overload! Staffer Alyssa Penacho captured this amazing footage right outside the Aquarium on 1/22/14. Our SORAC program has been studying and trying to save the threatened southern sea otter since 1984, so we were thrilled by this visit!”

2. UPDATE: They came back later in the week!
