For the second year in a row, the Vancouver Aquarium has dropped what might be the cutest winter video of the season: an adorable sea otter playing in the fresh snowfall.
In the video, an otter is seen squirming around on the snow clasping a snowball in its hand. In addition, the petite mustelid is shown nibbling on the snowball. And while they aren't shown in the video, the Aquarium explains in a Tweet that there are six other playful critters having fun in the frosty enclosure, too.
The Vancouver Aquarium asks visitors to stop by for some hot cocoa and enjoy the view at the, "otter-ly adorable winter wonderland."
As one of the only animals that uses tools, otters utilize their paws for a range of activities. Not only do they use their paws to eat their meals, but they also use them to hold paws with their buddies (otherwise known as rafting). And, as seen in the video below, they use them to fashion tools for fun, as well.
