Sea Otters Prince William Sound
This sea otter doggy appears content to be cuddling with its mama within the chilly waters of Prince William Sound, in the Gulf of Alaska (off the Pacific coast of Alaska, United States). As mothers cross, otters are of the dedicated kind. Theyre recognised to shower their doggies with attention, cradling them and grooming them for hours. But the grooming is extra than a gesture of affection--a mother will rub her pup to mat the pups fur, which causes the fur to keep air bubbles. The air insulates the puppy from cold water and on occasion causes the teenager to flow like a cork. Considering all this hugging and cuddling, we suppose the ocean otter makes a best mascot for the American National Cuddle Up Day, celebrated January 6.
