Without a doubt, otters are some of the cutest, cleverest, and most charming creatures in the animal world! And we’re not just saying that because of their fluffy coats and button noses (although that’s definitely part of the story). Otters are also very affectionate towards each other. For instance, two otters often swim holding paws, and an otter mom swims embracing her baby and carrying it on her belly. How cute!
