Little Otter Munches His Snack Like The Happiest Guy Ever

This video of an otter at meal time will make you want to steal him as your newest pet.

Most people picture otters in the water, swimming, building dams, and doing other impressive otter things. But what if an otter was out of the water and participating in a more conventional activity, say lounging around snacking? This video provides a special look at a more residential otter, and it's everything you hoped it would be.

With their expressive faces and dexterous, human-like hands, apparently watching an otter eat is a bit like watching a human eat, only far cuter. This otter seems aware he has an audience, and stares down the camera with every bite, daring the videographer to try and take his snacks away.

He's casual, too, though, rolling and twisting and almost throwing the bite-sized pieces into his mouth like humans do with popcorn.

If he's being judged by human standards, though, someone needs to tell him to chew with his mouth closed.
