Let's face it, celebrity baby photo layouts from the likes of J'Lo, Katie Holmes etc look like a bit of an anticlimax after this one...

I have never seen anything more adorable.

You already take such amazing pictures, I'm sure you'll track down some cute baby otters soon!
my first reaction "OH MY GOD!" that is *awesome*. it's funny, I went to my cuteness links on my blog and opened them all at once in separate tabs like I usually do and saw this on cute overload first. I'm glad it actually came from here and was credited. "Let's face it, celebrity baby photo layouts from the likes of J'Lo, Katie Holmes etc look like a bit of an anticlimax after this one." LOL
Thanks for letting me know it was on CuteOverload. Every animal website wishes they had CuteOverload's numbers. Right now I'm small potatoes. I gotta thank Angela D for letting Meg at COverload about this picture. Now if someone would only Digg this site and add it to Wikipedia...
I first saw this photo on flickr, so if you're going to go all out to increase your traffic, you may have to credit it too?

Hi Lutra, Was it posted by the photographer? I'd love to give credit directly to the photographer since I only have the originating website as a source. I want to make sure that every person who contributes a picture to this site gets proper credit and even a link back to their websites. Peter
you are so welcome! gotta share the cuteness and luv!

This is such a lovely photo! And I'm glad I saw it on CO, and got directed here. I love your site. I've pretty much loved otters, especially river otters, since I saw Ring Of Bright Water as a kid.

Hi E! I'm glad you like the site. I hope everyone here will watch "Ring of Bright Water". Maybe someday they'll do a remake of that movie.
OMG! OMG! OMG! I theenk my head ees goeeng to eeksplode!

Little known fact of nature: Otter children are embarrassed to be seen with their parents from a very early age.

That is so sweet. Mum looks so proud of her little baby!
I'm surprised no one has mentioned the cute baby otter tail hanging down
This is the only time you will see an otter with tiny hind feet. I love Mama's eyes. Should an otter wall calendar be created, this is the May page.

I was powerless and simply could not resist... so I forwarded this to my son on his birthday and told him he 'otter' know how much I love him! (^.^)
