One-day-old otter pup falls asleep on floating mum

One-day-old otter pup falls asleep on floating mum

This is the adorable moment a newborn sea otter nestled into his floating mother’s chest to fall asleep.

Photographer Connie Levenhagen captured the footage of the mother embracing her pup as they both floated downstream together at a Californian aquarium.

The baby otter’s mother is a wild Californian sea otter who took shelter in the tide pool to shield her against other animals and the stormy weather since the birth of her pup. According to an aquarium employee, the mother otter has everything under control, so the pup will not need any human care.
