Video Cuteness: Sea Otter Pup Luna Makes A Friend

By Lisa White in News on Mar 20, 2015 2:00PM

Our favorite little sea otter pup, Luna, is growing up so fast over at the Shedd Aquarium. She captured our hearts with her cuteness right out of the gate, but now she is winning us over as we watch her learn and grow. Yesterday the Shedd shared a big first step for Luna— she made a brand new otter friend.

Luna seems pretty pumped to meet fellow Shedd sea otter Mari. Mari just looks pretty pumped to get some extra treats. It is too cute when Luna gets all excited saying hello before racing over to show Mari her toys. The Shedd has been sharing much of Luna's journey as she grows from a fuzzy little pup to learning the skills she needs to survive as an otter. Recently Luna has been perfecting her diving skills, which yielded a sweet otter POV video as well.

We are happy to see Luna doing so well in her otter studies. Keep an eye on the Shedd's Youtube page for more sea otter cuteness.
