There are many examples of animals holding close and caring for each other in the animal kingdom, but the thing sea otters do is among the cutest ones we’ve ever seen.

These little creatures actually hold hands while they sleep so they won’t drift apart! This is the most common between mothers and their babies. They also find ways to wake up at the same spot where they fell asleep. The most common one is wrapping themselves in kelp which grows from the sea floor so it’s perfect as an anchor.
