Before taking a nap, sea otters wrap themselves in kelp so they don’t float away! Learn more about otters and why they’re nature’s heroes on a new episode of #wild_life with @BertieGregory: http://natgeowild.com/wildlife @canonusa #seaotter #cute #didyouknow #seaweed#ocean #sea #marine #marinebiology #conservation #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #marinebiologist #oceanconservation #nature #nap #cute #KeyConservation

To be honest I cannot decide who’s cuter here: the squid or the scientists. Just listen to them, they’re having so much fun. ROV livestreams are amazing, I really want to watch one but I don’t know which are active right now.

BTW, the squid is Rossia pacifica.

The researchers squeeing over this stubby squid (Rossia pacifica) is my new favorite thing. 

These adorable sea creatures can be found in waters from Japan to Southern California, and typically dwell along the ocean floor, at depths of around 984 feet (300 meters), though they have been spotted as deep as 4,260 feet (1,300 m), according to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI).(X)

Au where Alfred is a marine biologist and one day a half fish half human species comes in and his name is Arthur. They interact for awhile. They fall in love despite speaking and they basically swim in the tank together. A lot. Gay fish children.
