Tek This Out!

Two otters floating in the oceans, holding paws so they don't float away from each other.Is there a more adorable animal than the sea otter? These fuzzy little guys are the largest members of the weasel family, and also have the densest fur in the entire animal kingdom. They have up to a million hairs per square inch, all of which are waterproof to help them survive in the Northern Pacific Ocean.

Those may be some fun tidbits, but it’s just the tip of the iceberg. Otters are so adorable that they even hold hands when they sleep. This is done to prevent them from drifting apart from each other in the water.

Otters travel in groups known as “rafts” while eating, resting or sleeping. There can be up to 100 of them in a raft, all holding hands to make sure everyone is accounted for.

As if otters weren’t cute enough already. Now we have to find out they even have adorable personalities? If only they had them at the pet store.
