OK peeps the WHOLE DARN WORLD is jealous of the Monterey Bay Aquarium today.


OMG, snoozin' baby otter paws... there's a whole slideshow, too.  Check it out!

(otter underling) "Uh yeah, it's got your HEAD on it." (rolls eyes)

Can you imagine being the lucky zookeeper who gets to play with baby otters??  [headspins]

» Abundance of Otters Today from The Ottery
Cute Overload (not the same thing as Cute Otters) just posted pictures of the baby otters born recently at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The pups are African spotted-necked otters (I think I remember trying to draw one of those when I was eleven). While n... [Read More]

My cuteness owns you.

I have always loved to watch otters on TV. They are just so adorable.

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:45 AM

I am dead now. It was nice knowing you all.


 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:48 AM

*Ka-Blooie* I have just exploded because of the cuteness.

Their eyes in the lower picture reminds of the candy eyes on chocolate bunnies!

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:00 AM

my mother has just informed me i need to join COA (cute overloaders anonymous). i can stop any time. i swear!

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:02 AM

Yup. Head just asploded.

AAAAH.. I want to hold one! OHMYGAWD.
Spike, YES, you're right - chocolate bunny eyes! Weird and cute at the same time!

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:02 AM

I waaaaaant one!

She says, whining like a 3-year old!

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:03 AM

Do I see a disapproving otter??

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:07 AM

Too bad otters are so fragile! I'd have a dozen or so as pets, if I could!

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:08 AM

Yay! One more reason to revisit my favorite city!

[pant pant pant gasp]

I think otter on right is giving us the patented Woodstock "innocent" look.

(Why can I not find an image of that hi-larious Peanuts strip where Woodstock demonstrates the look? Are the internets busted today?)

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:15 AM

Beth -- yep. Click either of the photos in the post & that's where they'll take you.

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:16 AM

I think my head just caved in from the cuteness here. I think otters are amazing.

I really needed this post today after the terrible news I heard about the bombing of an Animal Market in Iraq yesterday. Let all of us animal lovers take a moment to honor the critters (and the 14 humans) that were lost. Dogs, cats, goats, rabbits, monkeys, snakes...the list goes on and on. :(

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:17 AM

OMG i want one (two). Elvis wants one(two). I will make my back yard into a pond for them.

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:28 AM

You should change the post title to, "You Otter Know". Sorry. :oP

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:29 AM

Anner-"i can stop any time. i swear." Yes, but why would you want to?

I watched a whole hour-long show on National Geographic Channel (I think) the other day about OTTERS! I thought I'd just die when it ended.

Chocolate bunny eyes- do you all eat them first? I always did and now my kids do too.

They look like the perfect hand warmers. One for each pocket. Your hands get cold and you stick them into pockets full of furry goodness and otter nuzzles! :)

Martha - NEVER!

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:33 AM

Hey cool! I live in Monterey! :D

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:34 AM

I think I know why we all love em, they are a perfect cross of a dog and a cat,dontcha think?

Throw a little "duck" in that mix & I think you've got it covered.

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 09:39 AM

I name one, Cute, and the other, Overload.

It really makes me miss Monteray - where I spent some years as a little girl- I have fond memories of a restraunt on a ferry where you could take a seat and watch the otters fish. The best time was when the mamas had their babies, and they would put them on the kelp bed while they dove underneathe to fish. Then they would hold the babeh on their belly while they taught them to open oysters- sooo cute--

I don't remember anything else about the restraunt. :P

I think the cuteness is a cure.
I've got a nasty repiratory infection, but the second I saw bebbeh otters
I feel better.

There's an adorable sea otter hand puppet project (made from a brown paper lunch bag, of all things) at


It _says_ "preK-3, ages 4-9", but I admit I downloaded the page of 'otter pieces', and will have to find my crayons this evening...

Being a 'responsible adult' is vastly overrated, anyway.

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 10:25 AM

Hey it's that subset of "Baroo"-ness again, but without the furbrows. Cuteologists, I think there needs to be a caucus on subsets of Baroo.

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 10:33 AM

These here are some otters
The most loved in our land
You can watch them swim and waddle
When you watch them on this cam:


(check this around 3-3:30P - it's their feeding time)

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 10:36 AM

"we will kill you with cutenes and then eat you.. on our TUMMMEHS!"

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 10:38 AM

Long time watcher, first time poster (LTWFTP). So, "hi" ever' body!

There's so much space between those teeny earsies that I just want to snorgle their smooth fur to my face. Too cute!

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 10:40 AM

I just watched the video. *dies*

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 10:45 AM

The second picture is so "We didn't do nothin'!" that it's killing me. Otters are such adorable, mischievous creatures. Who wouldn't love an otter?

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 10:57 AM

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 11:30 AM

It's MonterEy. A beautiful locale, indeed. I think I've been to that aquarium. Oh, that I could visit again today! *sniff*
