Baby sea otter at Seattle Aquarium up to nearly 4 pounds

Here’s the latest on the baby otter at the Seattle Aquarium.

Reports Tim Kuniholm from the aquarium: “Mom and pup doing well and loving the snow. Pup weighs 3.89 lbs as of this AM and gender is still unknown for sure.”

Mom Aniak and her pup are quite the contented pair, have a look:

The aquarium is open until 5 p.m. today, and will likely resume normal hours tomorrow, Saturday Jan. 21, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Check the website to be sure — and have a look at more sea otter photos and video.

There are lots more photos and videos on the aquarium’s Facebook page, too.
