As promised, here’s another sea otter mom with pup. This time from a considerably lower angle. This little pup kept venturing out its own, but never got far before mom pulled it back in. When wet, it’s sometimes hard to distinguish where one otter ends and the other begins. Their thick coats just sort of blend together.
