Just when we thought nothing could be cuter than a baby otter, we come across a baby otter sucking its thumb!
After this little guy was rescued, he relied on milk from a bottle as his food source. And just like a child, the otter eventually had to be weaned off the bottle. The baby otter didn’t like this idea, and had a very hard time coping without it until he discovered his thumb!
Sucking his thumb is now the otter’s favorite activity and he resembles that of a human child. While his keepers will have to eventually rid him of the cute habit, everyone is enjoying watching the furry animal splashing around in the water, with his tiny little thumb always in his mouth. Let’s just hope this won’t lead to braces later down the road.
