This is too cute...

The Vancouver Aquarium has just dropped what might be the cutest video of the season: an adorable group of sea otters playing in the fresh snowfall.

And while that already sounds extremely cute, the furry pals up the adorable ante by doing something even more charming.

They make snowballs.

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, too.

Sea otters and more

Watching a video of these beguiling critters may entertain you, but there’s nothing like seeing them up-close-and-personal.

The Vancouver Aquarium welcomes guests to its aquatic wonderland for a spectacular Valentine’s Day-themed After Hours on Thursday, February 14. Since the evening is for adults only, the aquarium has a scintillating after-dark itinerary that includes special programs on a range of racy topics.

Family Day fun, fins and feathers runs at the Vancouver Aquarium from Saturday, Feb 16 to Monday, Feb 18. However, the Aquarium is offering free admission for the first time to children under 12 on Monday.
