Baby Otter Is Fed, Put In Water, Squeaks Adorably (VIDEO)

If someone were to say to you, "Name a cute animal", which animal would you pick? Cats? Dogs? Rabbits? All valid answers - but more experienced cute-ologists would say only one thing: otters.

It's not just that they have big ol' whiskers and sleek wet hair - it's that they look incredibly mega-adorable when they're young. Just think about it... an otter, but smaller and fluffier - now that's cute.

To paraphrase Masterchef - for no particular reason - cuteness doesn't get any more adorable than this.

Want proof? Click play on on the video above, where a baby otter gets fed, then squeaks as he's placed into water. Then after that, check out this cute otter video slideshow we've got for you below. Enjoy!

P.S. Check out this photo gallery of otters that look like Benedict Cumberbatch. Trust us, you won't be disappointed.
