These charming animals are always ready for an otterly good time!

No matter where they are or what they’re doing, we can’t get enough of these fluffy otters.

While most of us know that otters hold hands while they sleep so they don’t lose each other, even more adorable, the creatures are very fond of games -- like using rocks as a slide or even playing some basketball. Even better, baby otters which are known as pups, are buoyant but unable to swim so often their mothers will wrap them in kelp to float while they go off hunting -- making the cutest blanket ever!

What’s not to love about these playful pups!
