Talk about a fuzzy feeling.
Yesterday thousands of lucky Monterey Bay Aquarium visitors experienced an unscheduled show in the Great Tide Pool adjacent to the main atrium of the world-famous destination.
A wild sea otter entered the protected pool a day earlier. Sunday she proceeded to give birth to what has to be, unofficially at least, the fluffiest sea creature on the planet.
Aquarium officials say guests were respectful about keeping noise low as they took pictures of mama otter grooming and generally hugging the heck out of the little guy.
Thousands more lost any conception of time or productivity online, where Facebook likes on the Aquarium page are approaching 20,000.
The mom-and-pup pair have stuck around today.
A Periscope rebroadcast of the sea otter birth at the Aquarium reveals the scene not long after it was born around 8:30am, with legion MBA staff looking on.
Like Facebook commenter Lisa Thompson put it: "I've been addicted to these two all day. I watched every minute of the Periscopes and got absolutely nothing done that I was supposed to."
