— From Animals (Fiction)


After a baby sea otter is separated from his mother during a storm, he washes up on shore where he is rescued by a human who takes him to an aquarium to recover. There he learns everything he needs to know about surviving in the wild, like how to dive to the bottom of a pool to find clams and how to break them open to eat. Before long the little otter can take care of himself and it's time to return home. He remembers the smell of the ocean he once knew, and soon finds himself surrounded by a new group of otter friends.
