Sea Otter Awareness Week?

by Kimberly A. Cook                        (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Can you believe it’s Sea Otter Awareness Week? I didn’t know about it until Wednesday, but it has been going on for a couple years. So in the interest of informing the public, zoos and aquariums had a #SeaOtterTweetOff  – talk about the quantity of cuteness.

In case you missed the posts, our own Eddie from the Oregon Zoo updated his basketball dunk video and went for the gold in the competition. But the Vancouver (B.C.) Aquarium also competed with rescued sea otter pup Hardy meeting 13-year-old Tanu for the first time. Adorable.

If you want to check out all the events before they end tomorrow, go to http://www.seaotterweek.org for all the info and to purchase the commemorative water bottle. Then we can all plan how we will celebrate next year.

I found out sea otters eat 25 percent of their weight every day. I’m a sea otter too!

Have a great, safe weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!
