The tiny animal took the opportunity for a little snooze while his mum relaxed on her back as the pair glided through the water.
Just days after a wild sea otter gave birth to an adorable little pup at the Great Tide Pool at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the two love to snuggle together. The newborn pup tries to sleep while laying on top of her mom floating in the tide pool.
The wild California sea otter sought refuge at the pool to give birth to the baby. The mom has spent time grooming and fluffing her newborn's fur to help her float. The aquarium says the duo will stay in the area before heading back into the wild.
