裝可愛的海獺 sea otter’s act of cuteness

blog_illl166-18

海獺在水面休息時,常擺出舉起雙手的可愛動作,原來這是為了保持身體温暖。海獺於寒冷的地區生活,但仍可在水中保持温暖,這全靠牠們一身非常濃密的毛。但唯獨牠們的掌心沒有毛髮的保護,才要如此”裝可愛”!

sea otters are known for their cute posts when they float on their backs and rest, with their front paws out in the water. however, this cute act is not because their want you to adore them, but to keep themselves warm! sea otters have one of the densest fur on earth  and this keep them warm in the freezing cold water. but their paws are the only part that is fur-free. therefore, they have to have them stay out of the water to avoid being cold, and that explains their act of cuteness.
