Sea Otters — The Cutest in the Animal Kingdom

 

Do you agree that sea otters are the cutest?

As the name suggest, sea otters spend most of their time in the water. They eat, sleep, hunt, mate and give birth in the water.

The cute part about sea otters is the fact that they actually hold hands in the water! This is to prevent themselves from floating away in the swirling sea while they sleep.

They often entangle themselves in forests of kelp or giant seaweed to provide anchorage.

Staying together is really that important for the cute watery creatures. And when the gentle baby sea otter is too small to hold hands, he rides on his mom. When mother otters have to go hunting, they wrap their pups in seaweed so they don't float away.

Oh don't you think that they're so adorable?

Well... Unfortunately there's a plot twist.

As it turns out, sea otters are actually the most wicked species in the animal kingdom!

Did you know that sea otters freakin' r*pe baby seals?

Sadly, when food is in short supply things can get ugly. Some males will hold otter pups hostage until the mother pays a ransom of food to the male.

But they don't just kidnap babies. This is the part where they will r*pe them, male otters would mount to these babies as if it were mating with a mature female otter.

Unfortunately, part of the mating process involves holding the female’s head under water which ultimately k*lls the seal pups.

It is observed that over an hour and a half, the male otter will hold the seal pup in a certain position, r*ping it until it is dead.

Sometimes when the seal pup dies, it just let's go and the psycho otter will begin to groom itself like nothing happened.

Some otters, however, will hang on to the dead pup and continue to r*pe its dead and decaying corpse for up to a week later.

It might sound terrible, but there's nothing we can do about it. That's just how nature is.

Anyway, sea otters are still cute right? *wink*
