Day Old Wild Sea Otter Falls Asleep On Her Mother’s Belly

Be still my heart! A wild baby sea otter was born in the “Great Tide Pool” at the Monterey Bay Aquarium on December 20, 2015 much to the delight of visitors in the area. The tide pool is adjacent to the aquarium and opens up to the ocean, allowing wild marine animals to come into the protected alcove.
