Motherhood is a special thing. God surely took special care when he considered creating the position of the mother. That precious pleasure isn’t just reserved for us, but even many animal parents can share a unique bond with their children in nature. In this video, taken at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California, a day old newborn Otter is held snuggly by his mother as they both float lazily atop the water of the “Great Tide Pool.” As the baby otter sets out to sleep off all the new excitement of life outside the womb, the mother otter does what mother’s tend to do; giving her newborn a bit of love, grooming, and a prompting parental care.
