CHICAGO, IL (WFLA) – The newest addition to the otter family in the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, the little Pup 719, is loving her pool and her toys. The video of her playing in her pool was posted on the aquarium’s Facebook page.

The orphaned sea otter pup was found in the crushing waves of the California surf in January. According to the Shedd Aquarium, she was rescued from the storm waves possibly caused by El Nino. The rescuers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium tried to locate the pup’s mother, but it was nowhere to be found. Monterey staffers took her in and nurtured her back to health.

The Shedd Aquarium staff gladly landed a hand in rehabilitating her and took the pup to be a part of their sea otter family in Chicago.

Pup 719 has adapted nicely to her new surroundings. She can be seen on video swimming, playing in her pool and just having the time of her life. She is in constant care of Shedd’s team and continues to achieve very important milestones, Shedd staffers said.
