A mother sea otter tenderly grooms her adopted pup. Sea otters look very adorable when they obsessively groom their fur. Grooming is an essential survival behavior for sea otters of all ages, since they do not have blubber to keep themselves warm when emersed in very frigid waters of the Pacific. Grooming traps air beneath their thick coat of fur, which can have about 100,000 hairs per square inch of skin, wow. mother otters constantly groom their pups, so the warm air remains trapped in their fur, and also this blanket of warm air keeps pups buoyant, to the point that it is impossible for the pup to sink or dive. They stay put until their mum returns with food. This female otter is a surrogate who is caring for a newborn orphaned pup. The pup has many toys such as a ball, starfish, lobster, barnacle, orca, clam, walrus and squid. He is now getting a bath from his mum. These sea otters are from northern waters near Alaska. Hope you like this little family.

How can you work on pieces like this without dying from the cuteness? And I don't even find that many things cute either, but this certainly is. The smile on my face is infectious. I don't know how you do it.
Wow so cute. Did you actually paint this picture. If you did you are really really talented...
