Another Otter Cuteness Alert

Meet "Otter 649"

This 12-1/2-week-old male sea otter pup was rescued in November 2014.  He was just three-weeks-old and quite ill.  But Otter 649 is healthy now and lives at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, CA.

He doesn't have a real name yet.  He's called Otter 649 because he is the 649th stranded otter rescued  since 1984. *

The little guy can't return to the wild because he has had too much contact with humans.

* Otter 649 number comes from being the 649th stranded otter to be brought into Sea Otter Research and Conservation program .
