Baby otters at SeaWorld Orlando

Published: March 30, 2009 at 3:04 PM

TPI daughter Natalie insisted that I post this:

Baby otters

From SeaWorld Orlando's press release today:

SeaWorld animal trainers in Orlando have their hands full with four baby Asian small-clawed otters. Born just three weeks ago to parents Simon and Sophie, the pups are nursing and will open their eyes in about a week. Asian small-clawed otters live in the rivers, creeks, estuaries and coastal waters of Southeast Asia, from northern India to southeastern China, the Malay Peninsula and parts of Indonesia.

FWIW, Natalie has volunteered to become official TPI correspondent for all cute animal photos.

Me? I'm wondering how I can turn this pic into an LOLCats. (I'm such a bad dad!)

I iz on your theme park blog
detracting from the tournament.

Seriously - great pic, though your daughter is only covering "all cute animal photos"? I will not accept this pro-cute agenda. Great Whites need coverage, too.

I'm proud of you Robert. You are doing what any good father does, which is what your children like to do. My husband (though he hates bugs) will watch the shows and look up facts for our son who loves to learn about them.

Actually, I think the otters are cute, too, but I just feel compelled to honor the TPI spirit by cutting the cuteness with a splash of snark.

BTW, Natalie's printed out the picture and tacked it to her bedroom wall. Brace yourself for more cute animal photos in the future....
