Holding Her Pup Close

A Sea Otter mom, who seemed to be totally cool with us, and allowed up to photograph her and her pup, swam over and grabbed her pup after another Sea Otter came a little too close.

 

As she was holding him, she took the opportunity to clean his fur a little bit before letting him go back to swinging on his own.
