We know, we know, we know, we’ve not made a post in a loooooong time. “Es tut mir leid.” “Whatever the French say for “sorry.”“* Our good friend (who will be buying us shots for this post?) @tinyj was apparently really, really sad about the baseball season ending (and her beloved White Sox not qualifying for the postseason), she asked us for a post…
What you see here are two baby Giant Amazon River Otters —pups, if you will— outside of the sea otter, the Giant Amazon River Otters are our fave (and really aren’t they all our fave?) In any case, this duo was born at the LA Zoo and photographed by a fella named “Tad.” One of you will get why that’s funny.
*See the French are rude, so they don’t have a term for “sorry.” Zing. Rimshot. Et cetera.
We’ve been napping in/around hotels and couches all day. Y’know, ‘cause sleeping is rad.
Well, well, well, if it isn’t our old (and impossibly adorable) friend the Giant Amazonian River Otter. Turns out the Miami Zoo’s Giant Otters had a bad case of the “Gettin’ It Ons” and, voila, baby otters! Mad H/T to our friend (and sorta adorable lady to boot) @Rosamund for hinting us on this.
If you thought the turning of the calendar meant we weren’t gonna cash-in on one of 2010’s biggest memes you’d be wrong. Dead wrong. Believe us when we say we looked really hard (some might say “too hard”) for a picture of an otter wearing a red bandana.
Baby otters are called “pups.” We’ve known that fact for a very long time; but we’d only found out about Otter Pops, the icy and delicious summertime treat, a few years ago on a visit to our friends Bobby and Leslie in LA.
Happy New Year! Thanks for reading our little corner of “Teh Internetz.” We’ll be going bigger, better and more awesome for 2K11. We hope you do the same.
We’re fairly certain that it was noted naturalist and voiceover guy for the Life docs, Sir David Attenborough, who first mentioned the otter’s penchant for getting “tore up from the floor up.” H/T: @rosamundlannin
