Help Name Shedd’s Sea Otter ‘Pup 681’

Shedd Aquarium’s rescued Southern Sea Otter pup, which came to the aquarium as part of a collaborative partnership with Monterey Bay Aquarium, is currently known as ‘Pup 681’. She has been swimming past significant milestones over the last few weeks and is growing quickly. Already double in size and weighing in at a little over 10 pounds, Pup 681 is now ready for a name!

What an otterly delightful surprise! Our guests and staff enjoyed a visit from a wild sea otter who spent some time napping and grooming in our Great Tide Pool yesterday. Staffer Emily Simpson grabbed these candids of the male otter.
